Hear hor­ri­ble his­to­ries

Hamilton Press - - OUT & ABOUT - COM­PE­TI­TION

Ever won­dered what it would have been like liv­ing though some of Bri­tain’s most hor­ri­ble his­tory?

Now you have the op­por­tu­nity to meet the most fa­mous, in­fa­mous and dan­ger­ous char­ac­ters in Bri­tish his­tory with the one-hour pro­duc­tion of Hor­ri­ble His­to­ries, com­ing to Clarence Street The­atre at the end of Septem­ber.

The ac­claimed West End show uses songs, au­di­ence par­tic­i­pa­tion, fun, facts and farts to tell the sto­ries of the peo­ple who made Bri­tain ‘‘barmy’’.

The pro­duc­tion is adapted from a pop­u­lar book se­ries by Terry Deary and car­toon­ist Martin Brown. It’s di­rected by Birm­ing­ham Stage Company ac­tor and man­ager Neal Fos­ter.

Fos­ter went to War­wick Univer­sity, Eng­land, to study drama but left af­ter seven weeks and set up a small the­atre company.

He would put the posters up in the af­ter­noon and wait for peo­ple to come that evening.

Hang out with Bri­tain’s mur­der­ers, roy­als and other in­fa­mous crim­i­nals on Septem­ber 30 at 11.30am or 1.30pm.
