Vintage episodes of family favourite radio series, Dad’s Army

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.

Enjoy an evening of family friendly humour for all ages.

David Benson is best-known for his performance as Noel Coward in the classic war-time comedy Goodnight Sweetheart. He exploded onto the theatre scene with his first solo show Think No Evil of Us: My Life with Kenneth Williams, in 1996. He followed this with a succession of solo shows on a wide variety of subjects, including Frankie Howerd, Dr Johnson, the death of Diana Princess of Wales and an award-winning examination of the Lockerbie bombing. David was a member of the National Theatre's smash hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors with James Corden, playing 1,015 performances of the show. 

Jack Lane founded Engine Shed Theatre Company in 2010. He soon adapted three episodes and two Christmas specials of the classic BBC sitcom Steptoe and Son receiving approval from the original writers Ray Galton and Alan Simpson. In 2015 Jack premiered Wisdom of a Fool, a self-penned one-man play based on the life and career of comedy icon, Norman Wisdom which opened to critical acclaim.
