Inspired by Animal Farm, this inside-out version of literature’s most famous political fairy-tale is written and directed by Rachel Briscoe and performed by the Student Theatre Co.
Welcome to A.F. Ltd where Jones and his pals are making a killing moving imaginary money around. Of course someone has to clean the offices, look after the computers and fix the air conditioning but Jones doesn’t know their names because – because why would you?
Except it’s 2008 and something is about to change. The workers have had enough. They are the 99%. A better world, where everyone is equal, is in sight.
All they have to do is avoid repeating Jones’ mistakes.
Inspired by Animal Farm, this inside-out version of literature’s most famous political fairy-tale meets Occupy in a contemporary bespoke reworking for LSBU. A.F. Ltd. mixes political urgency with Motown and pop hits – and will leave you in no doubt about the anti-revolutionary potential of avocado on toast.

We have come across some really excellent, impactful and innovative examples of student led #KE in our work, we are looking forward to hearing more from these case studies and getting an overview of the recent Engaging Students in KE call from @ResEngland at this @InfoTCCE event twitter.com/suzietcce/stat…
