About this product
- DescriptionWhen the downtrodden animals of Mar Farm overthrow their master Mr Jones and take over the farm themselves, they imagine it is the beginning of a life of freedom and equality. But gradually a cunning, ruthless elite among them, masterminded by the pigs Napoleon and Swball, starts to take control. Soon the other animals discover that they are t all as equal as they thought, and find themselves hopelessly ensnared as one form of tyranny is replaced with ather. Orwell's chilling 'fairy story' is a timeless and devastating satire of idealism betrayed by power and corruption.
