The Importance of Being Earnest

Encore screening from London’s Vaudeville Theatre. Celebrated actor and Poirot star David Suchet is the formidable Lady Bracknell in Oscar Wilde’s much loved masterpiece.

Wilde’s superb satire on Victorian manners is one of the funniest plays in the English language – the delightful repartee and hilarious piercing of hypocrisy and pomposity will make you laugh out loud!

Two bachelor friends, the adorable dandy Algernon Moncrieff and the utterly reliable John Worthing JP, lead double lives to court the attentions of the exquisitely desirable Gwendolyn Fairfax and Cecily Cardew.

The gallants must then grapple with the riotous consequences of their deceptions – and with the formidable Lady Bracknell.

'Laugh-loud funny… all-out joy' The Times
'David Suchet gives a magnificent, stage-filling performance' The Guardian
'David Suchet shines as Lady Bracknell' The Independent
'David Suchet makes an inspired Lady Bracknell' Daily Telegraph

This is not a story for the faint-hearted.

It’s a story of murder and betrayal. It’s a story of supernatural sorcery. And it’s a story that’s going to be retold as you’ve never seen it before. Tragic and hilarious in equal measures this innovative take on ‘The Scottish Play’ features femmes fatales, high-speed chases, killer lines, killer crimes and some seriously weird sisters.

WHY? ‘Part alternative rock band, part thespian… wholly charming’ The Times

NT Live: Hamlet

Stephen K Amos - The Laughter Master

The maestro of feel-good comedy is back on tour with his new show.

Stephen comes to Norden Farm fresh from touring the UK and Australia. He has starred in BBC Radio 4's Life: An Idiot’s Guide and What Does the K Stand For?.

WHY? 'As his autobiographical sitcom plays out on BBC Radio 4, Stephen K Amos is officially becoming a national treasure. Expect more warm insight and spiky charm here' Sunday Times

'Unashamed feel-good entertainment. Amos has had his share of TV exposure, but nothing that has successfully captured what he does live. If only a broadcaster could bottle the magic that was conjured up last night Amos would finally be a household name way beyond the Amos household' ★★★★ The Evening Standard

'Amos is a brilliant comedian who has the ability to strike up an instant rapport with his live audience. I’ve seen him stand in front of a room of strangers and after a few minutes they all seem to be his friends' Bruce Dessau, arts critic

Suitable for ages 16+ years

One Snowy Night

A Tale from Percy’s Park by Nick Butterworth

One winter's night it was so cold it began to snow
Great big snowflakes fell past the window of Percy's hut…

Percy the park keeper always feeds the animals in the park where he lives. But one cold winter’s night Percy finds his little friends shivering on the doorstep – they need more than food and he must find a way to help them…

The show's original run was at Norden Farm in 2010 and it returns by popular demand! Created by Slot Machine, the company that brought the hit Christmas shows Miki (2011) and Kipper's Snowy Day (2014).

Suitable for ages 3+
