Description


George Orwell's 1945 satire on the perils of Stalinism has proved magnificently long-lived as a parable about totalitarianism anywhere--and has given the world at least one immortal phrase: "Everyone is equal, but some are more equal than others."This new dramatization sticks very closely to the book, and the production has toured all over England, Scotland, Wales and Romania in Orwell's centenary year. "Dare I say it . . . as good as the book."--"Guardian.

About the Author




ERIC ARTHUR BLAIR (1903-1950), better known by his pen name George Orwell, was an English author and journalist whose best-known works include the dystopian novel 1984 and the satirical novella Animal Farm. He is consistently ranked among the best English writers of the 20th century, and his writing has had a huge, lasting influence on contemporary culture. Several of his coined words have since entered the English language, and the word "Orwellian" is now used to describe totalitarian or authoritarian social practices.
