Inspired by the farces of the ancient Roman playwright Plautus (251-183 BC), the musical play tells the bawdy story of a slave named Pseudolus aUppingham School’s Lower School Drama Society presents this play based on the novel by George Orwell which is an allegory in which animals play the roles of the Bolshevik revolutionaries and overthrow and oust the human owners of the farm, setting it up as a collective farm in which, at first, all animals are equal. However, class and status differences soon emerge between the different animal species. The play depicts how a society’s ideologies can be manipulated and twisted by those in positions of social and political power; a definite must see!
