Animal Farm (U) | Thursday 9th March | 7pm

If you successfully delude the masses into believing that a perfect society is just around the corner, the masses will redouble their efforts to achieve it while conveniently turning a blind eye to the excesses of the ruling elite. If the style has dated somewhat, the content certainly hasn’t.
