I’m Sorry, I’ll Read That Again… Again!
Venue: The Stroud Subscription Rooms
Date:Fri 06 Mar 2020
Roll up, Roll Up! Angus Prune OBE is back, with the Custard Pie of Radio Comedy.
I’m Sorry I’ll Read That Again… AGAIN!
Performed on stage in classic radio comedy style with live music and sound effects, The OFFSTAGE Theatre Group recreates the anarchic and deliciously surreal cult comedy show that laid waste to BBC Radio in the 1960s and 1970s.
Featuring actress and TV presenter Lisa Maxwell – known for being one of ITV’s Loose Women, as well as her roles on The Bill, Eastenders and Hollyoaks!
Following on from their critically-acclaimed first tour (which also featured cameos from original cast members Graeme Garden, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Jo Kendall), and subsequent new 4-part revival on BBC Radio 4 Extra in 2018/2019, this second Greatest Hits compilation of original material and songs by Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie is a knockabout show celebrating the radio series that gave birth to The Goodies and Monty Python’s Flying Circus – not to mention I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue.
Stand by for wicked parodies, glorious puns and silly ditties. It’s full-frontal radio, live on stage – with the unmistakeable strains of the Angus Prune Tune (and the unavoidable smells of sing-a-long-a-gibbon-stuffing).
This is a chance to meet – or happily catch up with – much-loved characters first created by Tim Brooke-Taylor, John Cleese, Graeme Garden, Sir David Hatch, Jo Kendall and Bill Oddie. There will be a cameo from one of the original cast members, or a celebrity fan of the show, at this performance.
Produced, Directed & Adapted by Barnaby Eaton-Jones
Featuring Hannah Boydell, David Clarke, Barnaby Eaton-Jones, William KV Browne, Ben Perkins and The Farrington Four (Andrew Farrington, Andy Rushton, Cath Thomas and Paul Wood).
