“Listen very carefully, I will say this only once.”
‘Allo ‘Allo is coming to Biggar Corn Exchange in May 2017.
Presented by Biggar Theatre Workshop and based on the hugely successful British television series that ran for seven seasons, this uproarious comedy relates the adventures of a hapless cafe owner, René, in occupied France. You can see all of your favourite TV characters in the flesh, including Rene’s tone-deaf wife Edith, Lieutenant Gruber, Crabtree, Helga and the Gestapo officer Herr Flick!
René and his wife have stashed a priceless portrait stolen by the Nazis in a sausage in their cellar, where two British airmen are also hiding until the Resistance can repatriate them. Communications with London, using the wireless that is disguised as a cockatoo, add to the many embarrassments this intrepid proprietor endures in the company of his patrons. News that the Fuhrer is scheduled to visit the town inspires tricksters disguised as Hitler to frequent the cafe. Meanwhile Rene summons all the wit he can muster to save his cafe and his life.
Show run: Tuesday 23 May to Saturday 27 May (additional matinee performance on Saturday at 2pm) 7:30pm, Biggar Corn Exchange.
Tickets available online at www.biggarcornexchange.org.uk/tickets and at Brownlies of Biggar (£10 adults and £8 for under 16’s – parental discretion advised 15+).
