Blackadder the Third

Milton Keynes Theatre of Comedy has performed three episodes of the classic TV comedy in the Chrysalis Theatre at Camphill Milton Keynes from 20th to the 24th September.
All three stories were set in Regency England (the early 1800s).
The three stories were:
Ink and Incapability:Prince George decides he needs to shake off his reputation as England's greatest thicky, so he agrees to patronise Dr Johnson's new dictionary.

Amy and Amiability:
As ever, the Prince is terminally short of cash, so he is persuaded to marry the fantastically wealthy heiress, Miss Amy Hardwood.

Nob and Nobility:
Everyone in Britain is mad with admiration for the Scarlet Pimpernel, who has been bravely rescuing French aristocrats from the clutches of evil revolutionaries.

The cast in all three stories -
Edmund Blackadder- butler (David Lovesy)
Mr S Baldrick - dogsbody (Chris Tennant)
George, the Prince Regent (Steve Clark)
Mrs Miggins - purveyor of pies (Anna Wingerath)
