See BBC comedy series DAD’S ARMY live on stage
January 28, 2020  //  By:   //  News  //  Comments are off

Jimmy Perry and David Croft’s classic BBC comedy Dad’s Army is brought gloriously to life on stage with three episodes hilariously and lovingly enacted by two master performers.

David Benson (‘Goodnight Sweetheart’ and ‘One Man, Two Guvnors)’ and Jack Lane (‘Wisdom of a Fool’ and ‘7 Days’) transport the audience right back to Walmington on Sea playing all the characters between them.

This 2020 tour features three classic TV episodes – ‘When You’ve Got To Go’, ‘My Brother and I’ and ‘Never Too Old’ – that were never performed on radio – and now newly-adapted by Benson and Lane with scripts approved and authorised by the Perry/Croft estate’ – complete with sound effects, vintage music and all of Perry and Croft’s beloved characters and catchphrases. Highly acclaimed by critics and by audiences of all ages.
