Blackadder II by Richard Curtis and Ben Elton

5th - 9th Oct 2021

Event info

Start Time: 7.30pm

Tickets: £15.00 Concessions: £13.00


Description

As we ease out of restrictions, we know that everyone will be going at a different pace. To help you return to the People’s confidently, we have the option of a socially-distanced performance on Tuesday 5th.

In booking for this socially-distanced performance you agree to adhere to our social-distancing measures which include wearing a mask at all times when in the building. This includes during the performance (unless you are exempt).

We are proud to be a See It Safely accredited venue, in association with Society of London Theatres and UK Theatre.

__________

Based on three episodes of the legendary BBC TV sitcom, this hilarious show transports us back to Elizabethan England where the scheming Lord Edmund Blackadder exploits his withering wit and cowardly cunning to seek his fortune at court. 

As ever, Blackadder’s ambitions are constantly hampered by his idiotic sidekicks - the aristocratic buffoon Lord Percy and turnip-loving Baldrick. 

To gain favour with Queenie, he must also contend with the eccentric ramblings of Nursie and the crafty scorn of Lord Melchett. 

Brought to you by the team who staged our hugely successful production of Blackadder Goes Forth in 2018, here we present a trio of the very best and funniest episodes from Curtis and Elton’s second series: ‘Beer’, ‘Bells’, and ‘Head’.

Adapted by Matthew Hope from the original BBC TV Series scripts for Blackadder II

IF YOU ARE BOOKING FOR TUESDAY 5TH:

This is a socially-distanced performance so we have divided our seating into blocks where there is no one sitting directly in front or behind you, and there is at least one seat between your party and the party next to you.

These blocks are divided into parties of one, two, three, four, five or six people. Unavailable seats show as grey.

When booking, please select a block that is the number of seats you require.

For example, if you are a party of two please select a block that is only two seats. Please do not book two seats in a block of three available seats. Our system will not automatically take off sale the seats around you.

If you require any assistance or have access needs, please do not hesitate to give the Box Office a ring on 0191 265 5020 (option 2) or email boxoffice@peoplestheatre.co.uk. We are open weekdays, 10.30am-1pm.
