Birmingham Stage Company are back, and this time their history is more horrible and entertaining than ever. Returning with director Neal Foster, Horrible Histories Barmy Britain Part 2 arrives at the Garrick Theatre for a gloriously grisly summer stint.

The Horrible Histories franchise is a well-loved and well-oiled machine that evolved from the children’s history books and television programmes. Now the stage show has arrived to teach children in a new, entertaining way. Whilst Part 1 told the tale of Romans, Vikings and Stuarts, Part 2 teaches the audience the gory details of the Black Death, Richard the Lionheart and more in an easily digestible way.

Unlike the traditional way of teaching history, Horrible Histories focuses on telling the slightly naughtier version of events in a more relatable way. 3D effects, puppets and fart jokes galore will ensure all young audience members are captivated by this fast paced and fast-witted performance.

Director Foster performs in the show alongside Lauryn Redding, Anthony Spargo, Timothy Speyer and Alison Fitzjohn. Horrible Histories Barmy Britain Part 2 hopes to continue the success of Part 1, which won the praise of critics across the country.
