The Story (Excerpt from the Dramatic Publishing Website)

THE STORY: George Orwell's satire on the perils of Stalinism has proved magnificently long-lived as a parable about totalitarianism anywhere and has given the world at least one immortal phrase: "Some are more equal than others." The animals on a farm drive out their master and take over and run the farm for themselves. The experiment is successful, except that someone has to take the deposed farmer's place. Leadership devolves upon the pigs, which are cleverer than the rest of the animals. Unfortunately, their character is not equal to their intelligence. This dramatization remains faithful to the book's plot and intent and retains both its affection for the animals and the incisiveness of its message.

The Story (Excerpt from the Dramatic Publishing Website)

We join the prolific naturalist Professor Arronax, his devoted assistant Conseil and the gritty harpooner Ned Land for an epic journey aboard the Nautilus, the world's first submarine vessel. Forcefully led by the dangerous and enigmatic Captain Nemo on an unprecendented tour of the seven seas, our three heroes are confronted by harrowing challenges, incredible adventure, and a host of most unusual creatures. They must also wrestle with the dark forces that lurk in the depths of men's souls if they are ever to return home alive. In this daring new adaptation of Jules Verne's classic 19th-century saga, an emphasis on action strips this adventure down to its essence, bringing spectacle and ensemble to the fore. While this work is primarily an adaptation of a classic piece of literature, it also contains a hint of satire, which stems from our love of '80s and '90s genre films, action-comedies in particular. References to Predator, Die Hard, The Last Boy Scout, Hudson Hawk, The Whole Nine Yards, Jaws and Blade Runner are peppered throughout the script to help lend a contemporary flavor. Winner of two Obie Awards and two Outer Critics Circle Awards as Best New American Play and Best Off-Broadway Production.
