The production recreates three episodes and an additional scene from the popular TV series


"The Deadly Attachment"

The Walmington-on-Sea Home Guard platoon has to guard a captured U-boat crew. But the fearless Captain Mainwaring incurs German displeasure when he orders the defiant prisoners to be served soggy fish and chips.

Pike is in trouble with the U-boat captain

"Your name vill also go in ze book - vot is it?"
"Don't tell him Pike"

Jones gets a nasty surprise from the U-boat captain

"You vill take us to ze harbour; one false move
and I vill pull ze pin from ze grenade in his trousers"

Mum's Army"

The Home Guard are recruiting women. However, Mrs Mainwaring has not left the house since Münich so she will not be joining her husband's platoon. So when a newcomer with a touch of class, Mrs Gray, joins the platoon, Captain Mainwaring sets tongues wagging with a brief encounter.

The Godiva Affair"

The platoon are rehearsing their Morris dancing routine as part of a fund-raising carnival parade which will include a ride past by Lady Godiva. After a heated selection process, Captain Mainwaring has a nasty surprise when there is a last minute substitution for Godiva.
