Horrible Histories – Terrible Tudors comes to the West End this summer

Birmingham Stage Company’s Horrible Histories – Terrible Tudors will come to the West End this summer.

The show will make its West End premiere at the Garrick Theatre from 2 August, with previews from 28 July and runs until 2 September 2022.

Horrible Histories – Terrible Tudors is directed by Neal Foster, designed by Jacqueline Trousdale, lighting by Jason Taylor, music by Matthew Scott, sound by Nick Sagar, with choreography by Kenn Oldfield.

Benedict Martin and Emma Swan will star in the production.

We all want to meet people from history. The trouble is everyone is dead! So it’s time to prepare yourselves for Terrible Tudors live on stage!

From the horrible Henries to the end of evil Elizabeth, 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. Meet Bloody Mary and see Ed fall dead in his bed. Survive the Spanish Armada as they launch their attack!

It’s history with the nasty bits left in!

This brand-new production marks the company’s tenth year in the West End, which happily coincides with the Birmingham Stage Company’s 30th anniversary. The company has recently been nominated for an Olivier Award for its production of David Walliams’ Billionaire Boy.
