Sample event image A country manor mystery that's actually a deliciously wicked comedy of manners, The Hippopotamus is an adaptation of the best-selling novel by Stephen Fry. Three-time Olivier Award winner Roger Allam stars as the disgruntled, cantankerous, semi-famous poet Ted Wallace who is hired to investigate strange doings at Lord and Lady Logan's country manor, Swafford Hall. Golden Globe Winner Matthew Modine plays the stupendously rich and gregarious Lord Michael Logan. Fiona Shaw co-stars as the doting mother Lady Logan.

Running time: 1hr 29 mins.
