This January, the classic BBC sitcom Dad’s Army is brought to life in a unique staging at Piccadilly Circus’s intimate performance venue Live at Zédel for a limited three-week run.
Two actors play 25 characters in this brilliant staging of classic radio scripts based on favourite episodes from the original TV series ("The best-loved of all British comedies" - Daily Telegraph). Celebrating 50 years of Perry and Croft's quintessential sitcom, which won the 'Best One-Liner' accolade in a poll of comedians conducted earlier this year by Gold, with the immortal words "Don't tell him, Pike".
Double Fringe First Award winner David Benson (Think No Evil of Us: My Life With Kenneth Williams and Boris: World King) and Jack Lane (Wisdom Of A Fool) star in this acclaimed show's London premiere season following a sold-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe. Featuring favourite lines, cherished characters and great feats of vocal impersonation.
