Prepare to meet the ruthless Romans, get shaken and stirred by Richard III and shudder at Elizabeth I’s terrible teeth!

Survive King James I’s witch-hunt and mount a mutiny against King Henry VIII! See Mary Tudor knock the spots off Mary Queen of Scots, but not before peeping into the world of Samuel Pepys and lending a hand to Georgian detectives on the hunt for the headless man! Round off with the night soil men and discover how to live through the first ever train ride!

Show was good but only two actors, would have been nice with a few more actors (maybe a few women too).
