I get to play a hen and a goat for Steppenwolf Theatre.
As part of their 2020/2021 season, Steppenwolf for Young Adults will present a radio play of 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? Directed by the amazing Lili-Anne Brown and featuring a cast filled with some of the most brilliant humans-turned farm-animals (Audrey Francis, Namir Smallwood, Alan Wilder, Robert Cornelius and Sharriese Hamilton), this offering is available to teachers and their students during the streaming window. Register today to receive complementary educational materials and access to the FREE radio play when streaming begins.
