Blackadder 2

29 June - 2 July

Playhouse Arts present three episodes from the hugely successful BBCTV series.


To avoid her family's destitution, Kate takes on the pesona of Bob, a young man that enters Blackadder's service. Edmund immediately finds himself confusingly attracted to his comely new manservant.


Edmund is made royal executioner, after the previous one mistakenly signed his own death warrant. In order to get half the week off, Edmund orders the execution of several prisoners a few days early. All is going swimmingly until the Queen, beseeched by Lady Farrow, pardons Lord Farrow who wasn't due upon the chopping block until the end of the week.


Edmund finds out his ludicrously puritan aunt Lady Whiteadder is coming to stay the same night as he has planned a high-stakes drinking contest with Melchett. Things escalate even further when Queen, determined to find out what happens at "boys night's" and decides to sneak into their party in disguise.

Based on the BBC TV series by Ben Elton and Richard Curtis.

Directed by Anne Chandler.
