For those who missed Barmy Britain - Part One! there is a final chance to see it from 7 August to 1 September at the Garrick Theatre and then book for Barmy Britain - Part Two! - the perfect follow up. check out a first look at the second show below!
Written by Terry Deary and Neal Foster, Barmy Britain - Part Two! is a 100% new show bringing a whole new set of grisly stories to the stage. The show serves up a profusion of funny facts and asks audiences 'Could you beat battling Boudicca?', 'Has William Wallace met his match?, 'Can evil Elizabeth entertain England?' before inviting them to 'move to the groove with party Queen Victoria'. This is real history conveyed in a fun and memorable way with new songs and sketches for audiences aged 6 to 106!
