Intense, Relevant, Great ensemble, Clever, Ambitious

See it if you want to experience a great ensemble preforming original material they have developed based on the famous novel Animal Farm.

Don't see it if political dialog makes you sleepy. A great deal of action is built into the performance but the book consists of repeated similar speeches.

Masterful, Great staging, Great acting, True to original, Transfixing

See it if you've never read the book, or just feel the need to revisit a masterpiece. Also, this is what OOB should be about but rarely is.

Don't see it if you need a lot of bells and whistles to hold your attention in a theatre. This is minimal, and expertly done. Also, this is serious drama. Read more

Relevant, Resonant, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Absorbing

See it if You are interested in thought provoking, relevant theater, where 4 people play 28 characters. Really an ambitious, amazing production.

Don't see it if You don’t enjoy relevant theater. It you can’t sit for over two hours with an intermission. If you don’t like George Orwell.

Thought-provoking, Quirky, Intelligent, Banal
