Photo Flash: The Seeing Place's World Premiere Of ANIMAL FARM

To kick off its landmark 10th Season, The Seeing Place announces its world premiere adaptation of George Orwell's dystopian novel, ANIMAL FARM. This play is being performed by an ensemble of just four actors, which results in a fast-paced, tightly drawn interpretation of this timely story.

"With the political climate as it is today, we felt that ANIMAL FARM would be a appropriate catalyst for a community conversation about autonomy versus group think," says Executive Artistic Director, Erin Cronican. "By creating this play for just four actors playing 28 characters, we shine a spotlight on the malleability of people's opinions and desires, which often depend upon who is in charge and what is promised to them."

With an emphasis on the organic, edgy American style of acting developed by the Group Theatre, TSP allows audiences to experience modern classics with deeper understanding of how they relate to the struggles we face today. With that, tickets are as low as $10 as a part of TSP's Affordable Theater Initiative, making theater accessible for all.

ANIMAL FARM plays for a limited engagement February 13-23, 2020. GENERAL ADMISSION - $20 (Premium tickets $30) www.TheSeeingPlace.com. The Seeing Place @ the Paradise Factory 64 East 4th Street, NYC

ANIMAL FARM features Laura Clare Browne, Erin Cronican ("Veronica Mars" and Off Broadway's THIS ONE'S FOR THE GIRLS, SISTAS!, and DANNY AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA), William Ketter (THE LITTLE PRINCE) and Brandon Walker (Off Broadway's DANNY AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA.) The play is Co-Directed and Produced by Erin Cronican and Brandon Walker, with Lighting Design by Lorena Ndokaj and Stage Management by Leeanna Yolanda Rivas.
