The nation’s favourite sitcom returns! The boys are delighted to head to The Kenton Theatre with three new episodes.

● The Love of Three Oranges
● The Miser’s Hoard
● The Making of Private Pike

Two actors, two microphones, over twentyfive characters – and lots of sound effects! The nation’s favourite sitcom returns new-minted in this highly-acclaimed production.

Perry and Croft’s classic BBC sitcom brought gloriously to life. Three episodes of the hugely popular television 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 television scripts – complete with sound effects, vintage music and all of Perry and Croft’s beloved characters and catchphrases. Highly acclaimed by critics and by audiences of all ages.

‘Benson and Lane’s two-man Army are a comedy force to be reckoned with.’
★★★★★ Radio Times

‘Benson & Lane carry it all off beautifully.’
★★★★ Daily Telegraph

‘Pretty much perfect feat of mimicry.’ The Times

‘Utterly brilliant, the best Dad’s Army recreation I’ve seen.’ Barry Cryer

‘Brilliant! The speed, accuracy and comic timing are breathtaking. I loved it!’
Joan Le Mesurier

“David Benson and Jack Lane turn in sterling work as Walker and Pike respectively. Their touring Dad’s Army Radio Show is superb; do catch it if you can.” Radio Times on Dad’s Army: The Animations
