Blackadder comes to life

Have your say

A STAGE version of the classic TV comedy Blackadder Goes Forth makes its Doncaster debut tonight.

The play of the series by Richard Curtis and Ben Elton is being performed at Doncaster Little Theatre until Saturday, July 16, each evening at 7.30pm.

Blackadder Goes Forth entertained the nation in the late 1980s as Captain Blackadder harangued his hapless sidekick Baldrick with the upper class twit Lieutenant George watching on.

Desperate to escape the trenches and inevitable death during the “big push”, Blackadder’s schemes grow ever wilder, his main nemeses being not the Germans but the barking mad General Melchett and his aide Capt Darling.
