This screening will be followed by a satellite Q&A with Stephen Fry and the cast, hosted by Mark Kermode broadcast live from the Hay Festival.

Based on Stephen Fry’s best-selling novel, The Hippopotamus is a deliciously wicked comedy of manners following whisky-fuelled, washed up poet-turned journalist Ted Wallace (Roger Allam). When a lucrative business opportunity arrives, Ted is summoned to his old friend’s country estate to investigate a series of unexplained ‘miracle’ healings. With Ted’s blunt pragmatism at odds with fellow guests, he sets out to prove that the miracles are a hoax.
