Fourth instalment of Horrible Histories heads to West End

The Birmingham Stage Company will produce the world premiere of Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain – Part Four in London’s West End this summer.

Written and directed by Neal Foster, the production will be at the Apollo Theatre (August 2-September 1).

It marks Horrible Histories’ seventh year in the West End and makes Barmy Britain the only show in West End history to launch a fourth sequel.

Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain – Part Four follows the success of Barmy Britain – Parts One, Two and Three as well as the most recent ‘Best of’ productions.

Audiences can re-live the times of the ruthless Romans, terrible Tudors and gorgeous Georgians, with sketches inspired by Terry Deary’s original Horrible Histories books.

The Birmingham Stage Company has been touring Horrible Histories for 13 years throughout the UK and overseas.

Other current productions include David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny and Awful Auntie and Roald Dahl’s George’s Marvellous Medicine.
