Three Comedies by
Jimmy Perry & David Croft
Dad's Army is a timeless reminder of a particularly British classic style of comedy. No matter how often you see the films they still make you laugh and the three stories presented this year by Congleton Players will have the same hilarious effect. All the old favorites are here as part of a three act entertainment evening which will have you raising the roof of the Daneside.
'Deadly Attachment' is the first of these pieces where the platoon have to guard a captured U- Boat Captain and his crew. Here the redoubtable Captain Mainwaring neatly turns the tables to come out on top in an episode containing one of the most famous comic lines ever written.
'Mum's Army' sees the Home Guard busily recruiting suitable women but when the interesting Mrs Gray arrives Mainwaring is smitten and there is a wonderful climax in the station tea shop as the scene ends on a puff of steam.
'The Godiva Affair' shows the Home Guard rehearsing a Morris dance as part of a fund raising carnival including Lady Godiva. Mainwaring gets more than he bargained for though as the sketch ends in a way he never intended.
