“Wanted – Person to Play a Pig in Animal Farm”
That was what I saw when I got into the train at 7am last Monday, 26 January 2011 .
Without my first cup of morning coffee, dark sky and cold mist, I thought I was seeing things.
There, stuck in front of the train seat was an advert looking for a person to act in a play for Animal farm:
Wanted – Person to Play a Pig in Animal Farm
I’m looking for an actor to play Snowball (a Pig) in a forthcoming production of Animal Farm.
If you look like a pig that would be an advantage.
Would all applicants please send a photograph of themselves to me (stage manager) Preston..
(Name and email address were air sprayed for privacy)
I mean I was born in the year of the pig and I love the book Animal Farm by George Orwell and almost shed a tear for those oppressed farm animals.
I don’t know what to believe. The guy may be serious. I had a good snigger about it that day.
If you think you might fit into the specs, let me know and I’ll send you the email address separately. 😉
