Hippopotamus + satellite Q&A with Stephen Fry – 28th May
When disgraced theatre-critic and poet, Ted Wallace (Roger Allam), is fired from his job, he is asked to investigate the mystery of so-called miracle healings at Swafford Hall, where he is godson to youngest child, David. His natural cynicism makes him the ideal candidate to get to the bottom of what’s going on, as well as some good whisky bottles, in this hilarious tale based on Stephen Fry’s seminal novel.
Join us after the film for a special Q&A with Stephen Fry, cast and film-makers live by satellite from the Hay Festival.
Running Time: 90 min Director: John Jencks Cast: Roger Allam, Matthew Modine, Fiona Shaw
