Horrible Histories: Brand New Barmy Britain – Perth Festival of Arts @ Perth Theatre
Mar 24 @ 4:30 pm – 7:00 pm
Horrible Histories: Brand New Barmy Britain - Perth Festival of Arts @ Perth Theatre

We all want to meet people from history. The trouble is, everyone is dead! It’s time to prepare yourselves for Horrible Histories live on stage with a brand new West End show that has never toured before – featuring all new scenes!

Would you be shaken or stirred by Richard III? Mount a mutiny against King Henry VIII! See Mary Tudor knock the spots off Mary Queen of Scots! Will Queen Elizabeth I endure her terrible teeth? Would you be hanged by King James I for being a witch? Peep into the world of Samuel Pepys and help Georgian detectives find the headless man! Take a trip into the night with the night soil men and discover how to survive the first ever train ride! It’s the history of Britain with the nasty bits left in!

Presented by Birmingham Stage Company, this show appeared at the Apollo Theatre in the West End as ‘Barmy Britain – Part Four’ summer 2018.

‘I begin to doubt, don’t you see? I begin to believe I imagine everything. Perhaps I do…’

Bella Manningham is going mad, ‘stark gibbering mad’ just like her mother. She must be: items go missing in her house; pictures disappear from walls, brooches, rings, keys, and pencils vanish, only to turn up in the most surprising places; lights flicker up and down; and she hears noises at night in the closed off rooms upstairs.

When Bella replaces her smelling salts for a stiff glass of whisky with a retired detective, the fog starts to clear. But what is the connection between all the strange goings-on around her and a violent murder and robbery twenty years ago? 

A mystery with shades of Film Noir, Kai Fischer directs Patrick Hamilton’s timeless psychological thriller which coined the term ‘gaslighting’

Suitable for ages 12+

Marie @ Perth Theatre

There’s two rules. First, the person you choose must be dead. And second, you have to be dressed up to get in. 

It’s Thursday night in the Prince Arthur and their latest theme night is in full swing. Landlady Liz is run off her feet, whilst husband Barry struggles to get into his new costume. Elsewhere in London, a young woman from Edinburgh steps off a train, determined to make her dreams a reality. 

Fast-paced and irreverent, Marie is a darkly comic new play inspired by the life of Mary Queen of Scots, but given a distinctly modern twist.
