Mon 28 Feb - Wed 2 Mar

‘To you, Baldrick, the Renaissance was just something that happened to other people, wasn’t it?’

Based on three episodes of the legendary BBC TV sitcom, this hilarious show transports us back to Elizabethan England where the scheming Lord Edmund Blackadder exploits his withering wit and cowardly cunning to seek his fortune at court.

As ever, Blackadder’s ambitions are constantly hampered by his idiotic sidekicks – the aristocratic buffoon Lord Percy and turnip-loving Baldrick.

To gain favour with Queenie, he must also contend with the eccentric ramblings of Nursie and the crafty scorn of Lord Melchett.

The stories are peppered with distractions such as Kate, know as Bob, the pox ridden prison staff Mr & Mrs Ploppy, the Wise Woman and who could forget the explosive Lord Flasheart!

Brought to you by the team from @2K who staged our hugely successful production of Vicar of Dibley in 2018, here we present a trio of the very best and funniest episodes from Curtis and Elton’s second series: ‘Chains’, ‘Bells’, and ‘Head’.

Adapted by Mark Scribbins from the original BBC TV Series scripts for Blackadder II.

Fees for this production were donated to Comic Relief https://www.comicrelief.com
