Throughout the ages, men of finesse, intelligence and courage have played their part in England’s glorious heritage. Others, like the long line of deceitful, cowardly and conniving Blackadders, have somehow emerged to claim their wrongful position in history.
This is the WWI story of how, destined to have fortune vomit on his eiderdown and to be forever shackled with a Baldrick (the descendent of an unfortunate meeting between a pig-farmer and a bearded lady), Blackadder faced down the slings and arrows of life…. and got very badly hurt indeed.
Directed by Dawn Briggs, Blackadder Goes Forth will be on stage in October 2018. Performances on 19th, 20th, 25th, 26th and 27th.
