IT is a case of four legs good, two legs bad for students at Freman College who are putting on a production of Animal Farm.
The adaptation of George Orwell's allegory of the Russian revolution is being performed by students in Year's 9 and 10.
Jo Todd, head of drama who is directing the play, said: "This is a particularly demanding play, especially for students of this age, because it requires a good understanding of the history and politics that lie behind it.
"I was really impressed, not just by the students' performance skills but also the maturity of their understanding."
