© The Other Richard

Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds is delighted to welcome Seabright Productions to the stage with their new adaptation of a classic BBC sitcom Dad’s Army – Radio Hour. Two actors will deftly mimic twenty five characters from the show in three classic episodes, performed in the style of a radio recording.

Celebrating 50 years of Croft and Perry’s quintessential sitcom Dad’s Army, which won Gold’s Best One-Liner award in a poll of comedians, with the immortal words “Don’t tell him, Pike” – the show is now on tour after sell-out London and Edinburgh seasons. Packed with favourite lines, cherished characters and great feats of vocal impersonation.

Starring double Fringe First Award winner David Benson (Think No Evil of Us: My Life With Kenneth Williams and Boris: World King) and Jack Lane (Wisdom Of A Fool) – the pair will seamlessly play twenty five characters in this new staging of three classic scripts based on favourite episodes from the TV series: ‘Mum’s Army’, ‘The Deadly Attachment’ and ‘Round and Round Went The Great Big Wheel’.

Dad’s Army is a BBC television sitcom about the British Home Guard during the Second World War. It was written by Jimmy Perry and David Croft, and broadcast on the BBC from 1968 to 1977. The sitcom ran for nine series and 80 episodes in total; there was also a radio version based on the television scripts as well as a feature film. The series regularly gained audiences of 18 million viewers, and is still repeated worldwide.

Dad’s Army – Radio Hour has three performances at Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds, Wed 14 – Thu 15 Nov, including a captioned performance Thu 15 Nov at 7.30pm.
