BLACKADDER'S CHRISTMAS CAROL
29th Nov - 2nd Dec 2017
This Christmas, we're presenting a very special adaptation of Blackadder's Christmas Carol!
In addition to adapting the script from the 1988 TV show, John Myhill is penning extra scenes in bring in all of Blackadder's incarnations - meaning this a Blackadder like you have NEVER seen it before!
The story is that of Ebenezer Blackadder who owns a moustache shoppe in good old Victorian London, and who happens to be the kindest and nicest man in all England. It is Christmas eve, and Blackadder's generosity means that he and his trusty man-servant Baldrick have the leanest of Christmases to look forward to. Visited by a Christmas Spirit, on his way home from giving spooky messages to the mean and miserly, Ebenezer is treated to hilarious visions of his ancestors' notoriously bad behaviour, as well as a vision of his descendants' future!
This adaptation includes unique scenes from all eras of Blackadder, including the Medieval and WW1 series not included in the 1988 TV show.
