‘Allo ‘Allo

Written by Jeremy Lloyd & David Croft
Directed by Amanda Harber

Based on the hugely successful British television series, which ran for seven seasons, this uproarious comedy relates the adventures of a hapless Café owner, René, in occupied France. You can see all of your favourite TV characters in the flesh, including René’s tone-deaf wife Edith, Major-General von Klinkerhoffen and the Gestapo officer, Herr Flick!

René 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 Führer is scheduled to visit the town inspires tricksters disguised as Hitler to frequent the Café. Meanwhile, René summons all the wit he can muster to save his café and his life.

Please note the performance may contain flashing lights and themes which may cause offence.
