The Phnom Penh Players will be presenting 5 performances of Animal Farm!
A metaphorical novel written by George Orwell that has been adapted to the context of Cambodia. Animal Farm is set on a Cambodian farm, and tells the tale of different farm animals who are tired of being ruthlessly exploited by their human masters. These animals rebel against their masters and take over the farm with the aim of running it themselves. Their intention is to create a fair and just community where everyone is equal, free and happy. However, things go wrong when one breed of animal, the pigs, begin to take over and ultimately morph into the new oppressors behaving just as the humans did before the rebellion.
