Guy gets ready for an­i­mal magic

Evening Express (City Final) - The Guide - - ARTS AND STAGE -

TRANS­FORM­ING ac­tors into beasts for a pro­duc­tion of An­i­mal Farm is a huge chal­lenge in it­self. But mak­ing it a one-man show on top of this re­ally ups the ante. And for Guy Master­son, who has adapted Ge­orge Or­well’s clas­sic novel for the stage, the prob­lems haven’t ended there. The ac­tor orig­i­nally set to por­tray all the crea­tures great and small in the clas­sic satire on to­tal­i­tar­ian regimes – Gary Shelford – has had to pull out of the per­for­mance. But be­ing a pro­fes­sional, Guy knows the show must go on, so he has stepped into the fray to take the lead in the pro­duc­tion, due to hit The Lemon Tree.
