The Bed-Sitting Room



By John Antrobus and Spike Milligan. Adapted for radio by Antrobus with help from Paul Merton. In the nuclear-blased aftermath of the Third World War, which lasted a mere two minutes and 28 seconds, Captain Kak and his fiancee Penelope encounter Lord Fortnum, who seems to be under the impression he is transforming into a bed-sitting room. Surrealist, post-apocalyptic comedy, starring Paul Merton, Derek Jacobi, Bernard Cribbins, Catherine Tate and John Antrobus.
