Lichfield show sees wartime classic given a comedy twist

ha-ha-hitlerThe Great Escape is set to get a comedy makeover as a new show visits Lichfield.

Following the hit national tour of Ha Ha Hamlet, the Ha Ha Boys bring you their spin on the most hilarious wartime story never told.

It’s 1942, German occupied France. Three hopeless RAF pilots plan an escape from the infamous stronghold Chateau Plonke. Under the watchful eye of General Von Schnitzershitz, Tom, Dick and Hilary take you on an unforgettable journey of ridiculous Luftwaffe laughter with a plot thicker than Hitler’s moustache.

What do German Generals get up to behind closed doors? Will Tommy find romance with French beauty Sophie Ce Soir? How will our heroes disguise themselves? And how important is the Enigma Machine code book to the outcome of the world’s most talked about war? Experience Hitler’s birth, his interrogation techniques and his bloody suicide in this mad-cap, knockabout tale of love and bravery.

A spokesperson said:

“Ha Ha Hitler! has it all singing and dancing, comic routines all rolled into a fabulous climax of escape, hope and Luftwaffe laughter.”

Ha Ha Hitler! The Great-ish Escape runs at the Lichfield Garrick from November 4-6. Tickets, priced £12 (£10 students), are available from the box office on 01543 412121 or online.
