Having already conquered television, the always brilliant Horrible Histories book series is coming to the London stage this half-term.
Barmy Britain will dish the dirt on life under everyone from the terrible Tudors, slimy Stuarts, to the gorgeous Georgians, vile Victorians and on to the frightful first world war.
The show is based on Terry Deary’s hugely successful children’s history book series that has now sold some 25 million copies in 40 countries.
Horrible Histories, which opens at the Garrick Theatre on Tuesday 14 February, is suitable for children aged six and over.
Performances have been scheduled with a young audience in mind so curtains go up no later than 17.00 for the hour-long show.
Shows start at 13.00 from Wednesday to Friday, with two early shows at 10.30 and 12.00 on Saturdays, and the slightly later times of 15.00 and 17.00 on Sundays. There are no shows on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Tickets can be bought online or by calling 0844 4829673 and vary in price from £10.50 to £20.
Thankfully for budding historians everywhere the show is expected to run well beyond this half-term.
