Following on from their highly successful inaugural theatre production ‘Open All Hours’, Serial Productions are proud to present the hilariously funny ‘Blackadder Goes Forth’ this October.

Blackadder Goes Forth is the fourth and final series of the BBC sitcom Blackadder, written by Richard Curtis and Ben Elton, which aired on BBC One in 1989.
The series placed the recurring characters of Blackadder, Baldrick and George in a trench in Flanders during World War I, and followed their various doomed attempts to escape from the trenches to avoid certain death under the misguided command of General Melchett.

The series is particularly noted for its criticism of the British Army leadership during the campaign, and also refers to a number of famous figures of the age. In addition, the series is remembered for the poignant ending of the final episode.

Despite initial concerns that the comedy series might trivialise the events of 1914–1918, the series won widespread acclaim on its release, and won the British Academy Television Award for Best Comedy Series in 1989. It has since become regarded as a classic television sitcom, and in 2000 was placed 16th by industry professionals in a list of the 100 Greatest British Television Programmes compiled by the British Film Institute.

Directed by David Gregory, the play features Joe Isaia as Captain Blackadder, Keith Scrivens as Baldrick, Rodney Van Groningen as Lt George, Tim Edwards as Darling and Peter Clark as General Melchett. A team of talented Perth actors including Brendan Tobin, Nick Brittain, Clare Wood and David Seman ably support the main cast.

Serial Productions is also proud to be supporting Legacy, a charity providing services to Australian families suffering financially and socially after the incapacitation or death of a spouse or parent, during or after their defence force service. Part proceeds from all ticket sales will be donated to this worthy cause.
