In 2012 the Garrick Theatre in London’s West End was the home of Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain and later audiences got even more as Barmy Britain Part Two appeared at the same venue.
Now Part Two gets another run in 2014.
Anyone that was a fan of the original run of shows that appeared at the venue will be right at home with this production, which means younger visitors to the capital will have something to sink their teeth into amongst the high profile West End blockbusters.
Whereas the original Barmy Britain (now called Barmy Britain Part One) focused on the likes of Henry VIII, Guys Fawkes and figures from Georgian and Roman times, Part Two moves onto other famous figures from British history. So expect hilarious and insightful portrayals of the likes of William Wallace, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth I. But as this is Horrible Histories, audiences won’t be spared the gruesome details concerning their actions, so this is unlikely to be something that they will forget in a hurry.
Horrible Histories is a brand that many people recognise, particularly if they have grown up during the 1990s and beyond. What started as a series of books has since led to television shows and stage productions that have ensured its place in popular culture in the United Kingdom. One of the best known names associated with Horrible Histories is Terry Deary, who penned some of the early books in the series and is also behind this stage production, writing alongside director Neal Foster.
Prior to the Barmy Britain series, other stage shows have included The Blitzed Brits, The Frightful First World War, Terrible Tudors and Vile Victorians, which were presented by the Birmingham Stage Company (as is Barmy Britain).
So if you are looking for a unique trip to the theatre and something that will entertain younger audiences then picking up theatre tickets for Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain – Part Two is a great way to spend your time in the West End.
Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain Part Two appears at the Garrick Theatre, also the home of Christmas With Lee Mead this Christmas, from Saturday 13th December 2014.
