Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain Part Four to return to the West End this summer
Marking Horrible Histories’ eighth year in the West End, Barmy Britain tells the historical tales of some of the most influential figures in history, such as the Roans, King James I, Queen Elizabeth, Mary Queen of Scots and King James I.
The show, which was last seen in the West End at the Garrick Theatre in August 2018, will return to the West End at the Apollo Theatre from 1st to 31st August 2019.
Devised by Birmingham Stage Company manager Neal Foster, the production is based on the series of books created by Terry Deary, which has sold over 25 million copies across 50 titles worldwide. The series was also adapted into a television programme on the BBC in 2009, after Foster produced the first stage production in 2005.
Speaking to LondonTheatre.co.uk ahead of the West End run last year, Foster said: “The biggest challenge is finding a story you think is gory and ridiculous, and you think it’s too grotesque to create a show out of it.”
