Want to see Spike Milligan show?

We have two pairs of tickets for topping theatre outing at Playhouse to be won today

Published on December 22nd 2009.

Want to see Spike Milligan show?

Spike Milligan’s celebrated war memoirs are brought to anarchic life, told through a joyous fusion of comedy, jazz, song and dance, in at the Liverpool Playhouse from 9 – 14 November.

A man called Chamberlain who did Prime Minister impressions spoke on the wireless; he said, “As from eleven o’clock we are at war with Germany”. (I loved the “we”). “War?” said Mother. “It must be something we said,” said Father...

This epic odyssey through World War Two, from the Bristol Old Vic and with a cast of extraordinary characters, charts Gunner Milligan’s progress from joining the Royal Artillery through the North African and Italian campaigns. High comedy and tragedy collide, as we follow him and his ad hoc jazz quartet – complete with their famed comedy routines – adrift on the tide of great historic events.

Adapted for the stage by Ben Power and Tim Carroll using Milligan’s own words, the story shows how humour, music and comradeship enabled a hapless and disparate bunch of young men to prevail against the might of the Nazi War Machine.

Tim Carroll also directs the production, fulfilling a lifelong ambition to bring Milligan’s madcap and poignant experiences to life, with a talented cast of actor/musicians which includes: Matt Devereaux, William Findley, Dominic Gerrard, Sholto Morgan and David Morley Hale.

We have two pairs of tickets to give away to next Wednesday's performance.

To be in with a chance of winning, tell us the name of the group of comedians Milligan used to belong to.

This competition has now closed. Congratulations to our winners.
