Blackadder Goes Forth, Gaslight Theatre, Alpha St, dinner/show, show only and matinee options. An amateur performance based on the hit BBC comedy television series Blackadder Goes Forth written by Richard Curtis and Ben Elton. All royalties paid to Comic Relief. 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’. Blackadder is foiled at every turn by General Melchett and his obsequious batman, Captain Darling. Everyone’s favourite rogue, Lord Flashheart is in scene-stealing form. Meal & Show and Show Only options available, special matinee on Armistice Sunday. Prices vary from $25-$60. Tickets available from www.eventfinda.co.nz or Cambridge Paper Plus. Parental Guidance advised – moderate sexual references, comedy violence, mild swearing. Flashing light effects.
