Blackadder Goes Forth

27 January - 3 February
Blackadder Goes Forth

Written by Richard Curtis & Ben Elton
Directed by Elizabeth White & Nick Tobias

To commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War, CODS is delighted to present three episodes of the BAFTA award winning BBC sitcom Blackadder Goes Forth.

Written by Richard Curtis and Ben Elton, and made famous by stars Rowan Atkinson, Tony Robinson and Hugh Laurie, the fourth chapter in the chronicles of the Blackadder dynasty brings us into the twentieth century and into a dark period of history.

It's 1917 and Blackadder is now a captain in the British Army at the Front, commanding gallant-but-dumb Lieutenant George St. Barleigh and the even dumber Private Baldrick. Waiting in fear of the dreaded order to go 'over the top' from the patently insane General Melchett, Blackadder devises serial attempts to escape the trenches always with the offer of one of Baldrick's cunning plans.

Blackadder Goes Forth cemented the series' status as an all-time great, not least by the bold and highly poignant final episode 'Goodbyeee' which will be performed in this production alongside 'Corporal Punishment' and 'Private Plane'

From the society that brought you Fawlty Towers and One Man, Two Guvnors, CODS proudly presents their tribute to one of the most intelligent as well as among the funniest of British sitcoms.
