I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again - The Old Rep (Birmingham, United Kingdom) - Birmingham

Performed on stage in classic radio comedy style with live music and sound effects, The OFFSTAGE Theatre Group recreates the anarchic and deliciously surreal cult comedy show that laid waste to BBC Radio in the 1960s and 1970s.Following on from their critically-acclaimed first tour (which also featured cameos from original cast members Graeme Garden, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Jo Kendall), and subsequent new 4-part revival on BBC Radio 4 Extra in 2018/2019, this second Greatest Hits compilation of original material and songs by Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie is a knockabout show celebrating the radio series that gave birth to The Goodies and Monty Python’s Flying Circus - not to mention I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue.Stand by for wicked parodies, glorious puns and silly ditties. It's full-frontal radio, live on stage - with the unmistakeable strains of the Angus Prune Tune (and the unavoidable smells of sing-a-long-a-gibbon-stuffing).From Professor Prune and the Electric Time Trousers to ever-frisky Lady Constance de Coverlet, this is a chance to meet - or happily catch up with - much-loved characters first created by Tim Brooke-Taylor, John Cleese, Graeme Garden, Sir David Hatch, Jo Kendall and Bill Oddie. There will be a cameo from one of the original cast members, or a celebrity fan of the show, at this performance.
