Blackadder Goes Forth
Have your say

One of television’s funniest and most popular shows is bound for the Grantham stage this month.

Blackadder Goes Forth will be staged by Grantham Dramatic Society at the Guildhall Arts Centre from November 26 to 29.

Blackadder was the main character in a series of comedies which ran between 1983 and 1989 on the BBC starring Rowan Atkinson.

The show is a special production to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War.

By turns hilarious and deeply poignant, Blackadder Goes Forth parodies the conditions of the battlefields in Flanders.

All your favourite characters are there, including naively enthusiastic Lieutenant George, downtrodden Baldrick and frustrated 
Captain Darling, not to mention blustering General Melchett!

Find out how Blackadder and chums plan to escape back to Blighty, how to make cappuccino in a trench, and why ‘wibble’ is such an important word.

The show was written for TV by Richard Curtis, who also wrote Four Weddings and a Funeral, and comedian and writer Ben Elton.

The show starts at 7.30pm each evening.

Tickets cost £8/£7 concessions for the Wednesday, and £9/£8 concessions each 
night from Thursday to Saturday.
