So this week I start to tread the boards again, playing the role of Melchett in Blackadder's Christmas Carol at the Chrysalis Theatre in Milton Keynes ...
I'm treading the boards again in Blackadder's Christmas Carol at the Chrysalis Theatre!

It starts this Wednesday and ends on Saturday with two shows. It's the Elizabethan version of Meltchett I play who, as we all know from the TV series, is a slimy untrustworthy type. The show, as suggested by the title, takes Blackadder back and forth in time so the costume changes are a bit frantic behind scenes.

So what's on the comedy front next year? There's a full-on comedy night on the day after Valentine day at the Carlton House Club in Olney. Details are to be confirmed, but it'll be sketches similar to our sell-out show there earlier in the year. I've also confirmed the legendary Richard Digance to appear on 14th May.
Allo Allo will be performed at our own Arches Theatre in or around August 2020 and we're still undecided on the venue for Porridge as it's a little more complicated to put on.
So plenty happening and I shall update you as and when more detail is confirmed.
Until next time ...
