SPIKE MILLIGAN GALA NIGHT

HAMBLEDON PRODUCTIONS 15TH ANNIVERSARY GALA NIGHT

“I think man has no option but to continue his own stupidity”

– Spike Milligan

SPIKE MILLIGAN’s contribution to comedy cannot be underestimated. Voted ‘THE COMEDIAN’S COMEDIAN’, he remains an unparralleled giant of the post-war era.

HAMBLEDON PRODUCTIONS is an award-winning theatre company specialising in classic comedy. Previous works are HANCOCK’S HALF HOUR, THE MILLIGAN PAPERS, THE TOMMY COOPER SHOW and STEPTOE AND SON.

On SUNDAY 3RD JULY, we’ll be honouring The Mighty Milligan with a rare performance of Spike’s post-apocalyptic comedy THE BEDSITTING ROOM, co-written with JOHN ANTROBUS.

It’s nine months after World War III, which lasted for two minutes and twenty-eight seconds, including the signing of the peace treaty. The survivors, a ragbag collection from across the class divides, are determined to make the most of the ultimate bleak situation and to slowly get the Empire back on its feet; with bizarre, hilarious, and even haunting results.

This ground-breaking, subliminal play carries an even greater relevance in our modern era. Packed with an acerbic sense of humour and a clear descendant of the ever-popular GOON SHOW, and a precursor to the surreal Q SERIES, this fresh revival boasts an updated script from John Antrobus and encourages us to do the humanitarian thing - laugh at ourselves. The event will also feature THE MILLIGAN EXHIBITION (including original artwork, scripts and memorabilia), LIVE MUSIC, A GALA RAFFLE, FREE CAKE and Guest Speaker JANE MILLIGAN.
