Season dates - 10th-24th November 2018 and 5th-8th December, 2018 at the Gaslight Theatre, Cambridge.
The season opens over Armistice weekend in Cambridge, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I (hostilities ceased at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, 1918).
This production is an amateur performance based on the hit BBC comedy television series Blackadder Goes Forth written by Richard Curtis and Ben Elton. All royalties from this production are paid to Comic Relief.
The script, adapted for the stage by director Dave Stearns, is based on 4 episodes of the original series (Corporal Punishment, General Hospital, Private Plane and Goodbyee) and has been written to allow for the complexities of transferring a television series to a stage performance.
The action is set in the British trenches of the Western Front in 1917 and chronicles Blackadder’s attempts to escape the madness of war, aided and abetted by upper-class twit, Lt George St Barleigh and the profoundly stupid Private Baldrick and his “cunning plans”.
