Blackadder II. Wednesday May 11th to Saturday 14th. 8pm.
Saturday Matinee 2.30pm
Comedy by Ben Elton & Richard Curtis. Directed by Tim Palmer.
Set in the 16th Century royal court of Queen Elizabeth, we follow Lord Blackadder as a courtier attempting to win the Queen’s favour while avoiding having his head cut off.
Aided and abetted by clueless servant Baldrick and grudging friend Lord Percy, Edmund Blackadder schemes and plots his way into the Queen’s good books. Over the course of the play, Blackadder gains a new servant Bob, whom he loses to the womanising Flashheart, accidentally beheads the wrong member of the aristocracy; and when he and Lord Melchett are kidnapped and thrown into the dungeons, they plan their escape to try and thwart evil Prince Ludwig.
With Queenie surrounded by loyal Sir Melchett and Nursie, the Elizabethan court is a world leader in sycophants, backstabbers, plots and schemes and Edmund Blackadder is determined to be the centre of them all.
Comedy based on the hit BBC Sitcom, this play adapts three episodes for the stage as a single play.

Watch the killer’s confession now to find out if you were right! Thank you for joining in and sending in all your theories and guesses. We’ve loved reading them! The name of everyone who correctly guessed the killer’s identity will be put onto our random spinner app and one winner will be chosen to win a £20 Amazon voucher.
Thank you so much for for joining in and playing along with our online murder mystery, Death at The Dorchester. We hope you enjoyed your stay. There were some great theories and motives suggested, some that even we hadn't thought of! We had 16 correct entries (sorry we discounted those that gave joint killers, even if one of those killers was right!) so well done to you 16. The winner of the Amazon voucher, picked by our random spinner was Pippa Webster. Congratulations Pippa! Special Master Detective kudos goes to three people, Jo Grant, Jan Picken and Tina Lord, who have submitted the correct solution to all three of our online murder mysteries. Excellent sleuthing work!
Thanks to everyone for their help with Dorchester. Think I am retiring from the murder business now. Let’s hope we get back on that stage soon!!!
A note from the author/producer, Mary Portalska: Thank you for watching and taking part in Death at The Dorchester, our third lockdown murder mystery! Again, all the actors filmed their parts individually in isolation, and their lines were then edited together.
A big thank you to all of the actors for recording their dialogue and for providing their own costumes and props, to Lucy P for the hours spent in the edit suite and to Ethan Baskerville for yet more fabulous original music. And lastly, thank you all for watching and playing along! Anyone fancy a Pomatini?!
Digswell Players are a successful local amateur drama group based in Digswell, Hertfordshire UK (near Welwyn Garden City). We are a member of the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) www.noda.org.uk.
We have been putting shows on since 1954
At Digswell Players, we produce our annual January Pantomime, a play in May. Our youth theatre, Expressions, stage a musical in June. Meetings and rehearsals are held on Wednesday evenings and on Sunday afternoons for the pantomime and the Youth group. We also rehearse on some Tuesday evenings.
In addition to acting there are many roles and 'parts' to be played as members of Digswell Players.
We have a full technical set up of modern lighting and sound equipment and this, along with design and building of scenery requires us to have a dedicated crew to mange and run these sections. We are always welcoming people to join this side of the society.
