Robert Icke is to adapt and direct George Orwell’s Animal Farm, in a production that will tour the UK.
The production will have design by Bunny Christie and puppetry by Toby Olié. It is produced by the Children’s Theatre Partnership.
Icke previously adapted and directed Orwell’s 1984, for the Almeida, a production that subsequently transferred to the West End.
Icke recently left his role as associate director of the Almeida after six years.
The play will tour the UK from 2022, with a schedule to be announced.
