IT'S horrible, it's barmy and it’s coming to Southampton this December.

After a hugely successful West End season, Horrible Histories – Barmy Britain can be seen at MAST Mayflower Studios from Wednesday December 8 to Saturday December 11.

This hilarious hit stage show is a gag-filled gallop through British history with two amazing actors playing multiple historical roles.

Can you beat battling Boudicca? Would you be a martyr for the Magna Carta? Will you lose your heart or head to horrible Henry VIII? Will Parliament survive gunpowder Guy? Dare you stand and deliver to dastardly Dick Turpin? Escape the clutches of Burke and Hare and move to the groove with party Queen Victoria! These are just some of the fascinating characters audiences will discover in this splendiferously funny show – it’s history with the nasty bits left in!

Barmy Britain is written by Terry Deary and Neal Foster from Deary’s bestselling Horrible Histories books. His 50 Horrible Histories titles have sold over 25 million copies worldwide from China to Brazil.

The producers, Birmingham Stage Company, are one of the world’s top theatre companies for families. As well as fourteen years producing all the Horrible Histories stage shows, they have also produced the smash-hit productions of Roald Dahl’s George’s Marvellous Medicine and David Walliams’ Awful Auntie, Gangsta Granny and Billionaire Boy.

This fantastic show will entertain all ages from 5 up with its hysterical historical journey through the barmiest bits of British history!
