Perry and Croft’s classic BBC sitcom brought gloriously to life. Three episodes of the hugely popular radio series hilariously and lovingly enacted by two master performers. David Benson (Goodnight Sweetheart and One Man, Two Guvnors) and Jack Lane (Wisdom of a Fool and 7 Days) transport the audience right back to Walmington, working from original radio scripts – complete with sound effects, vintage music and all of Perry and Croft’s beloved characters and catchphrases. Highly acclaimed by critics and by audiences of all ages.
"Benson & lane carry it all off beautifully" DAILY TELEGRAPH
“Utterly brilliant, the best Dad’s Army recreation I’ve seen”
Barry Cryer
"Brilliant! The speed, accuracy and comic timing are breathtaking. I loved it!"
Joan Le Mesurier.

    Flawless singing, amazing acting, great staging and lighting. It was funny and deeply moving. Half the audience were in tears by the end. Dora Gee and Duncan Burt really captured the comedy of their situation and Lisa MacGregor and James Edge brought both comedy and emotion perfectly.
