Based on the hugely popular TV comedy series, this sequel to the popular stage production of ’Allo ’Allo continues the adventures of reluctant resistance hero and harassed café owner, René Artois, in German-occupied wartime France. It features many of your favourite characters from the TV series and original stage play.

Still trying to repatriate a pair of British airmen, René, his wife Edith and their café waitresses, Mimi and Yvette, are embroiled in yet another complicated and life-threatening scheme. General Von Klinkerhoffen demands a fortune in francs in recompense for the loss of the infamous painting of ‘The Fallen Madonna With The Big Boobies’, and René is expected to come up with the cash.

But nothing is ever easy. The local undertaker, Monsieur Alphonse, is making advances on Edith. René’s mother-in-law, Fanny, objects to the radio used to communicate with London being hidden under her bed. No one can understand what Officer Crabtree (the British agent disguised as a Policeman) is saying. Michelle of the Resistance has a series of increasingly hare-brained proposals. Herr Flick of the Gestapo, Colonel Von Strohm and Captain Geering all have their own plans to get hold of the money, and Lieutenant Gruber still wants to take René away for a ride in his little tank… The cash, a set of forged notes and a bomb all end up hidden in identical camembert cheeses. What could possibly go wrong?
