George Orwell’s novel “Animal Farm” has been adapted as a stage play.  The Arkansas State University Theatre Department will present a production of “Animal Farm” beginning Friday, November Ninth, in the drama theatre of the Fowler Center on the A-State campus in Jonesboro.  KASU’s Marty Scarbrough spoke with one of the actors in this production as well as the director, Jeff McLaughlin, assistant professor of theatre.  McLaughlin explained the inspiration Orwell had for the original book.
