Join OTG’s youngest youth theatre group for a night of rebellion on Animal Farm.

When Snowball, Napoleon and Squealer formalise Old Major’s plans for rebellion and lead the other animals against their human overlords, the future looks bright. After promises of a better farm, a stronger and more stable home away from the turbulent relationship with humans, the animals work harder and happier towards a common purpose. The harder they work toward it, and the closer they feel they get, the further away their dream of a self-sufficient, self-powering farm seem. The goal posts are forever changing, at the hands of the pigs in charge. Soon, the animals see what leadership does to those who possess it, what the will of the people really means to them, and what happens when ideals triumph over critical thought.

George Orwell’s allegorical tale, adapted for the stage by Peter Hall, strikes to the core of political promise versus results. It highlights the politics of leadership itself, and what those in power are prepared to do to stay there. A challenging piece, tackled by OTG’s energetic stars of the future.

The Drunks

DrunksPoster

 

A small Russian town is crying out for a hero. Someone to distract from the seemingly constant cycle of drunk and corrupt politicians and police commissioners who lie and cheat their way to the top. When Ilya, a shell-shocked soldier who can no longer drink, returns from the frontlines at Chechnya, he finds himself stood in the eye of a political tornado, which could tear his hometown to pieces at any moment.

 

 

Come and join OTG Youth Theatre’s senior group for this hauntingly hilarious, deeply populist play, inspired by Gogolian comedy, that cuts to the core of small-town bureaucracy, and what it means to please all of the people all of the time.

 

This production contains stong language and adult themes.

 

This show will be preluded by a platform performance from our youngest youth theatre group. It is a production of Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes. This performance will begin at 6:30pm, prior to the FRIDAY and SATURDAY SHOWS ONLY. Tickets to this event are free. 

 

Performances will be March 9th, 10th and 11th at 7:30pm. Tickets are available here, or on the door on the night.
