Merlin Theatre, Frome

Following their hugely successful 2017 production of The Vicar of Dibley, Project Play are delighted to return with yet another side-splitting classic, ‘Allo ‘Allo.

Based on the hugely successful British television series that ran for seven seasons, this uproarious comedy embraces the adventures of the hapless cafe owner Rene, in occupied France. Featuring all of your favourite TV characters including Rene’s tone-deaf wife Edith, Major-General von Klinkerhoffen and the Gestapo officer Herr Flick!

He and his wife have stashed a priceless portrait stolen by the Nazis in a sausage in their cellar, where two British airmen are also hiding until the Resistance can repatriate them. Communications with London using the wireless that is disguised as a cockatoo add to the many embarrassments this intrepid proprietor endures in the company of his patrons. News that the Fuhrer is scheduled to visit the town inspires tricksters disguised as Hitler to frequent the cafe. Meanwhile Rene summons all the wit he can muster to save his cafe and his life.

Featuring a very special message from the original BBC TV Series’ Yvette, in the form of Vicki Michelle, the whole experience will be simply unmissable!
