Allo Allo – Spring 2010

Allo Allo by Jeremy Lloyd & David Croft

Heckington Players 2010 spring production was Allo Allo by Jeremy Lloyd & David Croft.

Based on the hugely popular TV comedy series, 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 the cellar. René is hiding two British airmen and is endeavouring, with the help of Resistance, to repatriate them. However, communications with London through wireless disguised as a cockatoo 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 the café becomes filled with tricksters intending to impersonate Hiter before the event. René will need all the wit he can muster to save his café and his life…!
