Dad's Army Radio Show

Author(s): Jimmy Perry and David Croft Company: Jack Lane and Something For The Weekend

Two actors, two microphones, over 25 characters—and lots of sound effects.

The scripts are enacted on stage by two performers—complete with sound effects, vintage music and favourite Perry and Croft characters and catchphrases.

The original television episodes newly minted for The Dad’s Army Radio Show 2024 national tour are:

The Love of Three Oranges

A church bazaar is organised for the “Comforts for the Troops Fund”. Hodges intends to auction three oranges, and Capt. Mainwaring is determined to get hold of one for Mrs Mainwaring.

The Miser’s Hoard

When Frazer is revealed to have a secret stash of gold sovereigns, Mainwaring believes he must hand them over for safe keeping.

The Making of Private Pike

Pike borrows Mainwaring’s staff car to drive his new girlfriend to the cinema in Eastgate. On the way back, however, and nine miles from Walmington, it runs out of petrol.
