Dad’s Army marches into York Theatre Royal on June 21 at 2pm and 7.30pm with Dad’s Army Radio Hour, a brilliant staging of classic radio scripts based on favourite episodes from the original TV series.
The two performances celebrate 50 years of Jimmy Perry and David Croft’s quintessential sitcom, which won the Best One-Liner accolade in a poll of comedians conducted earlier this year by Gold, with the immortal words “Don’t tell him, Pike”.
Double Fringe First Award winner David Benson (star of Think No Evil of Us: My Life With Kenneth Williamsand Boris: World King) and Jack Lane (Wisdom Of A Fool) play all 25 characters between them in a selection of classic radio episodes featuring favourite lines, cherished characters and great feats of vocal impersonation.
