21st February 2018 at 7.30pm
Chetton Village Hall
DIRECTOR JOHN JENCKS. COMEDY
A country manor mystery that’s actually a deliciously wicked comedy of manners, The Hippopotamus is a rollicking adaptation of the best-selling novel by Stephen Fry. It centers on a lapsed poet, failed drama critic, redundant husband and hard-working drunk, Ted Wallace (the mellifluously voiced Roger Allam in a rare starring role). Fired from his newspaper job, Ted leaps at the chance to drown his sorrows at his old friend’s country estate, Swafford Hall. A series of spiritual healings have recently put the household in a tizzy.
Starring Roger Allam, Fiona Shaw, Matthew Modine, Tommy Knight, Emily Berrington
