Schomburg Series welcomes The National Players on Nov. 8

October 25, 2012


DEFIANCE, Ohio – Defiance College welcomes back to campus The National Players for the next Schomburg Series performance. The popular touring group will perform “Animal Farm” in Schomburg Auditorium on Thursday, Nov. 8, at 11 a.m.

Revolution has broken out on Manor Farm. The animals have claimed their independence! Humans are banished, and the new “Animal Farm” will be a beautiful egalitarian paradise. Pigs, horses, goats, donkeys and dogs -- all animals are equal. They can build their new utopia, but can they resist the corruption that led to the human’s downfall? From the author of 1984, this chilling and provocative fable is brought to the stage with the focused clarity and spark audiences come to expect from The National Players.

Individual performance tickets are $10 and are available at the door.
