Cardboard Carnival By Lempen Puppet Theatre Company

Trunk, Tail, Ears or Wings? Carnival creates itself from all sorts of things! This is Carnival of the Animals but not as we know it as we try to create the "ultimate animal" we take inspiration from the music by Camille Saint-Saëns, a little help from Darwin and a whole lot of cardboard to mash up a show full of puppet possibility.

Inspiration and delight for everyone from 4 to 104.

NT Live: Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead

Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter, The Woman in Black), Joshua McGuire (The Hour) and David Haig (Four Weddings and a Funeral) star in Tom Stoppard’s brilliantly funny situation comedy, broadcast live in HD from The Old Vic theatre in London. David Leveaux’s new production marks the 50th anniversary of the play that made a young Tom Stoppard’s name overnight.

Against the backdrop of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, this mind-bending situation comedy sees two hapless minor characters, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, take centre stage with The Player. In a literary hall of mirrors, Tom Stoppard’s brilliantly funny, existential labyrinth sees us witness the ultimate identity crisis.

£16.00 & £11.00 (Under 21)
