2015 – Blackadder II

Blackadder II – Adapted from the TV series by Richard Curtis and Ben Elton

Growl Theatre kicked off 2015 with a sell-out production of Blackadder II – 4 out of 5 shows were totally sold out! The popularity of the show means we might see Blackadder III and Blackadder IV in upcoming years. Can’t wait for that!


Synopsis

The original may be dead… but now his bastard great-great grandson swaggers around Renaissance London with a big head and a small beard.

In the Tudor court of Elizabeth I, Lord Edmund Blackadder strives to win Her Majesty’s favour while attempting to avoid a grisly fate should he offend her.
