11th – 19th May 2012

A bold, ebullient and often hilarious play about the charismatic traveller and drunk, Rooster Byron.

This play contains strong language throughout (more information here)

The Barn will be one of the first non-professional theatres to stage this critically acclaimed show, which had a sold-out run in the West End last year and is now repeating its success in New York, where it has already garnered six Tony awards.

Set in present-day rural Wiltshire, its dark, often ribald humour chronicles the state of the nation and the conflict between individuality and political correctness.


Tickets are on sale now for just £10.

School groups pay only £5 per seat. Teachers interested in booking seats should contact our Education Coordinator Cindy Lawford Contact education team to find out about available workshops and talks on the play.
