About the play:

Written by Richard Curtis & Ben Elton

Written by Richard Curtis and Ben Elton, and made famous by stars Rowan Atkinson, Tony Robinson and Hugh Laurie, the fourth chapter in the chronicles of the Blackadder dynasty brings us into the twentieth century and into a dark period of history.

It’s 1917 and Blackadder is now a captain in the British Army at the Front, commanding gallant-but-dumb Lieutenant George St. Barleigh and the even dumber Private Baldrick. Waiting in fear of the dreaded order to go ‘over the top’ from the patently insane General Melchett, Blackadder devises serial attempts to escape the trenches always with the offer of one of Baldrick’s cunning plans.

Blackadder Goes Forth cemented the series’ status as an all-time great, not least by the bold and highly poignant final episode ‘Goodbyeee’  alongside ‘Corporal Punishment’ and ‘Private Plane’.

Battle of the Somme.

 

I had seen this play at last year’s Fringe Festival and had to see it again. The performance of the 5 lads was just as impressive as I remembered it last year. A must see for anyone visiting the Fringe! Brilliant Must See !.

Incognito first burst onto the Fringe back in 2014  with their sell out  show “Government Inspector”.

This year is the century year of the Battle of the Somme, Incognito theatre revives Erich Maria Remarque’s classic tale that exposes the mental and physical strain of trench warfare. Adapting the story in their trademark physical style, Incognito harnesses the tragic energy of Remarque’s novel and creates a stunningly poetic , poignant and expressionistic theatrical experience in order to tell the breaking story of the German soldiers who fought on the Western Front during the Great War.The production consists of an ensemble of 5 boys who all give a superb performance that reduces you to tears. The choreography of the play is just outstanding and well rehearsed resulting in a smooth performance  that allows the audience to immerse in the emotions of the story.

An incredibly physical performance and easily one of the best shows at the Ed Fringe this year!!
