Macbeth

A new version from Proteus.

In the City, success is all and ruthless ambition is rewarded. The only problem is, how do you control it before it consumes you and your family?

This is London, October 1987, Black Monday.
This is a tale of greed, betrayal and murder.
This is Macbeth.

Featuring movement from Theatre Ad Infinitum's George Mann and a talented cast of BAME performers, award-winning theatre company Proteus present a highly physical version of Macbeth.

WHY? Shakespeare's Macbeth is reimagined as a corporate thriller which explores race, class and the pressures faced by first generation British-born children of immigrants

Pinocchio

The third in a series of three shows coming to the Norden Farm stage for Christmas 2020.

The objects of a carpenter’s workshop bring to life the tale of the puppet that wants to be a real boy, and the puppet-maker who wants to be a real father. A one man show starring Steve Tiplady, as Geppetto.

Pinocchio is carved on stage, brushes become a fox and the shadow of two saws transforms into a giant shark. An element of improvisation makes each performance unique to its audience.

Puppetry, shadows, illusion and especially composed music combine to create a show with something for all ages; it’s inventive, visually and verbally witty with a big heart.

Oldilocks and the 3 Bears

The first of three shows coming to the Norden Farm stage for Christmas 2020.

Oldilocks finds a teddy bear in the park and remembers a delicious bowl of porridge she tasted years ago in the woods. Something else happened but she can’t quite remember what… so she sets off for the forest.

Join Oldilocks as she sets off for another adventure followed by a scruffy old pigeon. Will she find the bears' house and what will happen then?

A wonderfully funny and warmhearted celebration of the classic story, starring a naughty old lady who looks very familiar… and 3 funny bears who love their breakfast.

Expect to be spellbound by lovingly crafted puppets, music and some steaming bowls of porridge!

The latest show from Garlic Theatre, who have previously brought Eggs on Legs, Three Billy Goats Gruff and Three Little Pig Tails to Norden Farm.

Sonnets, in action, with actors

A group of actors come together to recite Shakespeare in a completely unique performance, all in the aid of charity.

In March 2020 theatres and film sets closed in the UK and around the world.
How did some actors, directors and academics pass the time? They met by Zoom every week for six months and threw themselves in to Shakespeare’s sonnets.

Hailing from Tel Aviv to Swansea, from Venice to Newcastle, the acting company includes Steffan Rhodri (Gavin and Stacey, Harry Potter), David Neilson (Roy Cropper from Coronation Street), Miles Jupp (The Thick Of It, Rev, Greed). Other actors have played at National Theatres from Ammanford to Tokyo, the Royal Shakespeare Company, the West End and Broadway. TV and film credits include everything from Z Cars to The Crown.

This show is part master class, part rehearsal, part sharing, part spoken word gig, part group therapy, and all audience participation. The actors share what they have learned about the sonnets during lockdown.

The only script is the sonnets and anything could happen. Professor Carol Chillington Rutter (Professor of Shakespeare and Performance Studies, University of Warwick) will be on hand with a complete works, a microphone and a bell, if things start getting out of hand. Expect a fun, unpretentious, accessible, cliche-busting, myth torpedoing introduction to playing Shakespeare. Come, listen, participate, heckle and leave everything you’ve learned about Shakespeare at the door.

Online streaming tickets are also available for this event – so you can enjoy the show live from the comfort of your home.

WHY? An event in aid of Norden’s Ark Appeal and Harry’s Fund.
