Written and created especially for Zoom during Nottingham Playhouse’s temporary closure due to the pandemic, Noah and the Peacock is a brand-new form of live, at-home theatre. Having received rave reviews the first-time round, the production is back for two weeks from Wednesday 12 to Sunday 23 August.

Aimed at primary school aged children and their families, Noah and the Peacock is a funny and charming tale of hope, friendship and overcoming the odds. The story tells of Peacock and Peahen. Peacock is extremely pompous and all he can talk about is his beautiful feathers. Peahen, on the other hand, is much more modest and longs to make friends with the other animals. When the pair hear news that a huge flood is on the way, Peacock refuses to leave the roost and risk ruining his perfect plumage in the rain. So, with no other choice, Peahen sets off on a journey through the dark forest and along the great blue river. As all the animals must go two-by-two, will Peahen make it onto the ark alone? Can stubborn Peacock change his mind before it’s too late?

Tickets cost £10 and give access to the Zoom link for each household along with a show activity pack. There will also be a Pay What You Can performance on Sunday 16 August at 10.30am, a BSL interpreted performance on Saturday 15 August at 2.00pm and captioned performances on Sunday 16 August at 10.30am and 2.00pm. The show is recommended for children aged 5 – 9 and their grown-ups.
