This week, starting tonight (18th September 2018), Milton Keynes Theatre of Comedy will be presenting the last ever Blackadder episodes: The Final Push. Over the top chaps ...

Blackadder goes forth, one last time.

Blackadder goes forth, one last time.

Enter the usual characters of Captain Blackadder himself, Baldrick, George, Captain Darling, and General Melchet. Also making cameos are Lord Flashheart, Baron Von Richthofen, and a variety of other deranged characters.

It is a brilliant show with a tremendous cast and superb backstage management and a set design that is truly realistic. So, come along and see us at the Stantonbury Theatre.

Will Baldrick make Captain Darling a cappuccino? Will Blackadder succeed in the Royal Flying Corps? Will he get out of going over the top by putting a pair of underpants on his head and sticking two pencils up his nose? All this hilarity and much, much more.

We will be raising money for The Royal British Legion this week as it is 100 years since the end of the Great War, so do come and see one of the finest pieces of satire ever penned by Richard Curtis and Ben Elton.

Book your tickets here, and it's tally-ho ... over the top chaps.

Until next time ...

DAVID PIBWORTH
