Programme Note #1: Dad’s Army & Are You Being Served?

The Directors of our two shows have tried to think of clever things to say about the dramatic integrity of their work, the sublime messages of the playwrights and the supreme talents of their cast and technical crews. But what the hell .. this is just good, clean [or fairly clean] fun!

There is something wonderfully British about the situation of the 1940s Home Guard and the situation of the 1970s department store that cries out to be celebrated in great British situation comedy. Messrs Croft, Perry and Lloyd are masters of the art – and Messrs Brownings and Thompson know a good thing when they see it.

Wick Theatre Company loves to do Shakespeare, loves to do serious drama and adult comedy – but it also loves jokes and pussies and stupid boys. We hope you do too!
