- Blackadder II
- Mon, 20. April 2020, 7:30pm - Sat, 25. April 2020
The second play of the 2020 Season.
Written by Ben Elton & Richard Curtis
Directed by Kath Ashworth
Comedy based on the hit BBC Sitcom, this play adapts four episodes for the stage.
Set in the 16th Century royal court of Queen Elizabeth, we follow Lord Blackadder as a courtier attempting to win the Queen’s favour while avoiding having his head cut off.
Aided and abetted by clueless servant Baldrick and grudging friend Lord Percy, Edmund Blackadder schemes and plots his way into the Queen’s good books. Over the course of the play, Blackadder gains a new servant, Bob, accidentally beheads the wrong member of aristocracy, and has a heavy-drinking boys night out. He also finds himself in debt to the Bishop of Bath & Wells until coming up with an idea so cunning you could brush your teeth with it.
With Queenie surrounded by loyal Sir Melchett and Nurse Patsy, the Elizabethan court is a world leader in sycophants, backstabbers, plots and schemes and Edmund Blackadder is determined to be the centre of them all.
