Blackadder Goes Forth, performed by Chameleon Theatre Company, went beyond all expectations. It truly brought back a classic comedy set during one of the greatest conflicts in history on the Western Front in 1917.
The acting was superb for a local theatre production and the stage set was top notch with lots of detail and really transported you back to that period in time which gave the whole play a great atmosphere.
Most of the play was centered around Captain Blackadder’s many schemes to escape the trenches, all ending with a serious twist at the end as Blackadder and his men went over the top into No Man’s land as part of the big push. This was all cleverly portrayed in slow motion. A very enjoyable evening with an unforgettable ending.
