“Leesen verrry carefully, I weel say zis only wurnce…!”

Based on the hugely popular TV comedy series, the stage version of ‘Allo  ‘Allo, by Jeremy Lloyd and David Croft, follows the adventures of René, the hapless (and somewhat randy!) café owner in the town of Nouvien in war-torn occupied France,  as he and his wife, Edith, struggle to keep for themselves a priceless portrait  (of the ‘Fallen Madonna with the big boobies’) stolen by the Nazis and kept in their cellar.

René is also hiding two British airmen and is endeavouring, with the help of the French Resistance, to repatriate them. However, communications with London through a wireless disguised as a cockatoo add to the many embarrassments he is forced to endure. Matters come to a head with the news that the Fuhrer himself is to visit the town… René will need all the wit he can muster to save his café and his life!

An hilarious show packed with a host of ridiculous comic characters and more silly accents than you shake a croissant at!

Join, René, Edith, Michelle, Mimi, Herr Flick, Lt. Gruber, Officer Crabtree, Leclerc and many more in this fantastical funny production featuring large German sausages, inflatable Hitlers, saucy waitresses and of course that infamous painting of ‘the Fallen Madonna with the Big Boobies’

You can view the end credits for the show, which were filmed by Jeremy Cooper and Alan Marlow, here on Youtube
