More Horrible Histories head to the West End

Birmingham Stage Company will present Horrible Histories – More Best of Barmy Britain at the Garrick Theatre to celebrate the company’s 25th anniversary (August 4-September 2).

The show also marks 12 years of Horrible Histories Live on Stage and six years in the West End.

This special instalment of Barmy Britain follows the sell-out successes of Barmy Britain – Parts One, Two and Three as well as last year’s The Best of Barmy Britain.

It will feature more of the “horribly best bits” from all past productions plus a new scene about Shakespeare.

The productions bring to life the Horrible Histories books, written by Terry Deary, featuring revolting Romans, vicious Vikings, vile Victorians and many more characters from the past.

Meanwhile, Birmingham Stage Company’s stage adaptation of David Walliams’ best-selling book, Gangsta Granny, is also at the Garrick this summer (July 26-September 3).

The Horrible Histories shows will be staged earlier in the day, ahead of the Gangsta Granny performances.

BSC will produce an adaptation of another of Walliams story – Awful Auntie – which embarks on a national tour in September.
