New stage show from Horrible Histories

Date Posted: 01/05/2013

The latest branch of popular children’s books and television programme Horrible Histories, is the Barmy Britain stage show. Barmy Britain – Part Two! opens at the Garrick Theatre in London’s West End from 26th September to 5th January.

Delving into the murky depths of history once more, Barmy Britain – Part Two! is performed solely by two actors, Lauryn Redding and Anthony Spargo, who play a cast of characters and bring a whole new set of grisly stories to the stage.

Written by Terry Deary and Neal Foster, Barmy Britain - Part Two! ‘leaves the nasty bits in’ to ensure real history is conveyed in a fun and memorable way with new songs and sketches for school groups of children aged six and above.

A school trip to see the show promises to be educational as well as fun, as it serves up a profusion of humorous facts.
