Gary Wilmot (Chicago, Me and My Girl) and Olivier Award winner Sara Crowe (Private Lives, Four Weddings and a Funeral) lead a cast of 15 actor-musicians from the acclaimed Tony and Olivier award-winning Watermill Theatre in this gloriously funny musical comedy.

In the heart of London’s Blitz-torn West End, the cast of BBC’s light-entertainment radio show, Variety Bandwagon are doing their bit for the war effort. But with the bombs falling outside, can star of the show Sammy Shaw hang on to his leading lady and broadcast live to America for the first time?

Chock-full of quick-fire gags, side-splitting routines and classic songs from one of our best of British musical talents, Noel Gay (Me and My Girl), Radio Times features forties favourites such as Run Rabbit Run, Hey Little Hen, My Thanks To You and There’s Something About a Soldier.
