ABOUT THIS SHOW

For the first time ever, Steppenwolf for Young Adults presents a radio play as part of the 2020/21 season! In Animal Farm, George Orwell’s always timely allegory, a group of diverse farm animals rise up against the human ruling class, hoping to form a society in which animals can be equal, free and happy. But in the turbulent wake of a revolution, will power corrupt even the noblest of causes? Featuring a cast filled with Steppenwolf ensemble members and esteemed Chicago actors, this radio play presentation brings Animal Farm into conversation with 2020’s political landscape of revolution, uprising, and civil disobedience.

The run time of this radio play is 90 minutes.
