Our Year 8 and 9 students really enjoyed Botfarm 2014 – Rise of the Appliances. The show conveyed the key elements of dystopia – particularly Orwell’s Animal Farm – in a fun, accessible format. The pop culture references were appreciated, and the physicality of the performance made for lots of humour.

Shakespeare as you write it was a brilliantly created play. The teaching points of iambic pentameter for example, were cleverly acted out. The play was extremely funny and the audience participation was enjoyed by all. A very informative and very funny play.
