Laughing Monkey presents David Croft and Jeremy Lloyd’s stage play, based on their classic BBC sitcom.
A normal day in a normal café … in war-torn occupied France. Hapless café owner René and his wife Edith struggle to keep for themselves a portrait stolen by the Nazis (‘The Fallen Madonna … with the big boobies’) and secreted in a sausage in their cellar; whilst with the help of the French resistance, René attempts to repatriate two British airmen, also hidden in the café. However, communications with London through a wireless disguised as a cockatoo add to the many embarassments 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 Hitler before the event. René will need all the wit he can muster to save his café … and his life!
