Two actors, two microphones, over twenty-five characters - and lots of sound effects! The nation’s favourite sitcom returns new-minted in this highly-acclaimed production.


Perry and Croft’s classic BBC sitcom brought gloriously to life. Three episodes of the hugely popular radio series hilariously and lovingly enacted by two master performers. David Benson (Goodnight Sweetheart and One Man, Two Guvnors) and Jack Lane (Wisdom of a Fool and 7 Days) transport the audience right back to Walmington, working from original radio scripts – complete with sound effects, vintage music and all of Perry and Croft’s beloved characters and catchphrases. Highly acclaimed by critics and by audiences of all ages.

‘Benson and Lane’s two-man Army are a comedy force to be reckoned with.’

★★★★★ Radio Times


‘Benson and Lane carry it all off beautifully’

★★★★ Daily Telegraph


★★★★ The Mail on Sunday
