Once Upon a Labrador
Production Company:Charles Garland Productions
An evening of wry humour with Charles Garland, and his Labrador Alfie.
Charles goes back to his roots with his book of whimsical verse entitled ‘My Labrador Eats Poo’ (not quite as disgusting as it sounds!) illustrated by Harry Venning, This is a friendly and informal show, with lots of laughter, a Labrador and ‘a bit of verse’ from my forthcoming book about Alfie the Labrador.
Original music interludes by: Rick Wakeman
Directed by: Sam Snape
Charles Garland was on the staff of the BBC in the television comedy department, working on many different programmes - and was assistant to David Croft, the producer / director and co-writer of Dad's Army, Hi-De-Hi!, 'Allo 'Allo! You Rang, M'Lord? and Oh, Doctor Beeching for about 30 years. People seem to like hearing stories from 'behind the camera', so he throws a few in!
He has been writing directing and producing ever since and now, with Alfie, has written a humorous book for all dog-lovers to enjoy! Meet Alfie, his inspiration and enjoy a light-hearted Summer evening of mirth
