2nd to 7th March 2015 at the Chrysalis Theatre, Milton Keynes

Following the success of our first visit to Elizabethan England with Blackadder II in September 2014, we returned to Queenie’s Court to stage the remaining 3 episodes from the popular TV series.

Money: Blackadder is pursued by the baby-eating Bishop of Bath and Wells over an unpaid loan and is forced to formulate cunning plans to make money…

Potato: In the wake of Sir Walter Raleigh’s triumphant return from America, and in an attempt to impress the Queen, Blackadder plans a voyage of his own around the Cape of Good Hope…

Chains: Blackadder and Melchett are kidnapped by the German Prince Ludwig, a murderous master of disguise, and held to ransom…

Written by Ben Elton and Richard Curtis. By kind permission of Richard Curtis and supporting Comic Relief. Royalties and our show raffle raised just under £800 for the charity.
