For 25 years now, Neal Foster has been creating inventive, engaging theatre for children with Birmingham Stage Company. Since 2013, he has been chronicling the history of Britain regularly writing, directing and starring in the Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain series. Foster is also gearing up to adapt a second book by David Walliams. Following the success of Gangsta Granny – which returns to London at the Harold Pinter later this month – his take on the Awful Auntie book will reopen the newly refurbished Bloomsbury Theatre.

"Horrible Histories is back, channelling Monty Python, the Reduced Shakespeare Company and Punch and Judy along the way. And the closing number must be just about the most politically edgy thing in the West End."
