Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain - Part TwoAfter last year's sell-out success this stage adaptation of Terry Deary's popular Horrible Histories children's books returns to the Garrick Theatre as the Birmingham Stage Company presents Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain - Part Two. Boudicca, William Wallace, Queen Victoria and the rest of Britain's horrible history is recounted at the "gallop" in this "theatrical romp" (The Guardian) which also features many TV reference so you get the Vikings invading in a bloody version of 'Relocation, Relocation' and Field Marshal Haig getting fired on the final of 'The Apprentice'. Altogether "pretty good entertainment if you are 10 years old", says Lyn Gardner in The Guardian. Recommended for children aged six and above.

 

About Garrick Theatre

Named after the great 18th century actor-manager David Garrick, whose portrait hangs in the foyer bar, The Garrick is a fantastic piece of late-Victorian kitsch, originally financed by WS Gilbert. The interior is decorated like a Renaissance palace, all cupids and laurels, with hardly a smooth surface visible among all the moulding, gilt and classical statues. More about Garrick Theatre
