NT Encore: Jack Absolute Flies Again

A rollicking new comedy by Richard Bean (One Man, Two Guvnors) and Oliver Chris (Twelfth Night).

After an aerial dog fight, Pilot Officer Jack Absolute flies home to win the heart of his old flame, Lydia Languish. Back on British soil, Jack’s advances soon turn to anarchy when the young heiress demands to be loved on her own, very particular, terms.

Emily Burns directs this spectacularly entertaining new version of Sheridan’s The Rivals. Featuring a cast including Caroline Quentin, Laurie Davidson, Natalie Simpson and Kelvin Fletcher.

  • The World of Peter Rabbit TM Storytime Trail
    08/08/2022 10:00 - 31/08/2022 17:00

    The World of Peter Rabbit TM Storytime Trail

    The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter was first published by Frederick Warne & Co. (now part of Penguin Random House UK) in 1902. The World of Peter Rabbit™ will be celebrating 120 years of mischief throughout 2022.

    In celebration of the anniversary, Frederick Warne & Co. are pleased to present “The World of Peter Rabbit™ Storytime Trail” a walk-through experience where visitors will be able to immerse themselves in The Tale of Peter Rabbit. Little bunnies will be able to crawl under the garden gate, hide in a watering can and see their reflection in a mirror pool, just like Peter Rabbit!

    With photo opportunities and activities to take part in along the way, there will be plenty of opportunities for families to celebrate Peter Rabbit’s birthday in 2022.
