St Margaret's Church Hall, Victoria Avenue N3 1BD

This is the stage version of an extremely well-known television comedy - definitely politically incorrect but also very funny! I imagine most people will know that it is about Rene and his wife Edith, who are trying to keep for themselves a priceless portrait stolen by the Nazis, and hidden in a sausage in the cellar of their cafe. He is also hiding two British Airmen who the Resistance are trying to repatriate. Complications include a wireless disguised as a cockatoo and the news that the Fuhrer is to visit the town brings Hitler look-alikes to the cafe! Rene needs all his with to save his cafe – and his life.
