The portrait, the Fuhrer, the airmen and the sausage

THE stage of Mere Lecture Hall will be transformed into the bar owned by Rene Artois in Nouvion for the next Mere Amateur Dramatic Society production, ‘Allo, ‘Allo, on from 21st to 23rd March.

This rip-roaring comedy has all those famous characters you remember, know and love from the television programme of the same name, which ran for nine series from 1984 to 1992. The stage version of ‘Allo ‘Allo follows the adventures of René, the hapless café owner in war-torn occupied France, as he and his wife, Edith, struggle to keep for themselves a priceless portrait stolen by the Nazis and kept in a sausage in their cellar.

René is hiding two British airmen and is endeavouring, with the help of the Resistance, to repatriate them. However, communications with London through a wireless disguised as a parrot add to the many embarrassments he endures in the company of his patrons. Matters come to a head with the news that the Fuhrer is to visit the town, and before long the café is filled with tricksters impersonating Hitler before the event.

René will need all the wit he can muster to save the cafe and his life….!

Performances are at 7.30 every night. Phone 01747 861257 for more details.
