Britain is in the midst of the Second World War and the brave Officers of the RAF are fighting the battle in the air over the south coast of England. In a little corner of Sussex, the officers of RAF Tangmere are playing their part in the Allied Forces' mission to defeat Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany and, ultimately, free Occupied Europe. When one of their own is suspected of being a spy for the Nazis, the rest of the team must come together to defeat their evil foe for the sake of our brave boys in the sky.
In this comedy musical, the Chidham & Hambrook Players pay tribute to the ordinary people who each played their part in Britain’s victory in 1945, as well as shamelessly plagiarising the work of Richard Curtis, writer of the Blackadder series on which this production is based. With daring pilots and plucky intelligence officers, as well as music from the period, this show will bring a bit of wartime Sussex to Chidham in commemoration of the 76th anniversary of the end of the Second World War in Europe.
