TERRIBLE TUDORS & VILE VICTORIANS

Wed 14 – Sun 18 Nov

Watch out for head-chopping Henry Vlll & the amazing Charge of the Light Brigade both coming to your local theatre soon!

 

Birmingham Stage Company’s two Horrible Histories productions – Terrible Tudors and Vile Victorians are stomping throughBritain during 2012 & touring to more than 40 venues reaching the Theatre Royal,Nottingham from Wednesday 14 – Sunday 18 November.

 

Both shows use actors and amazing Bogglevision 3D special effects, helping the audience to feel what it was like to live in the sixteenth century ruled by all those hideous Henries & the evil Elizabeth I or in the nineteenth century struggling to survive the misery of the mines & those really rotten railways!

In Terrible Tudors you will hear the legends (and the lies!) about the torturing Tudors. Find out the fate of Henry’s headless wives and his punch up with the Pope. Survive the Spanish Armada as it sails right into theaudience!

 

In Vile Victorians you will find out what exactly a baby farmer did. Can you survive the filth of the factories, the slums & the sewers – and prepare for the Charge of the Light Brigade.

 

 

These two shows are adapted from Terry Deary’s best selling Horrible Histories books which are hugely popular both on the page and on television – the BBC TV series has this year won both the British Comedy Award for best TV Sketch show and the RTS Best Children’s TV programme.

 

Terry Deary is the world’s best selling non-fiction author for children and one of the most popular children’s authors in the country. He has written around 200 books, which have been translated into 40 different languages fromChina toBrazil. His Terrible Tudors book was voted best ‘Best Book of Knowledge of All Time’ by BBC TV Blue Peter viewers.

the Champion of the World and George’s Marvellous Medicine – in Horrible Histories they excel even their great reputation for wonderful family shows!

 

Families in Nottinghamshouldn’t miss out on this awful chance to travel back in time. Both shows are funny and historically informative and you’ll discover all the really ‘yucky’ bits of history that teachers and serious books never tell you! To be enjoyed by everyone from 5 to 105!
