Horrible Histories brings the bloody story of Britain throbbingly alive in this hilarious show from the excellent Birmingham Stage Company. Bloody, marvellous stuff!The Daily Express
Is this any way for children to learn about history? Too right it is! If lessons were always like this, kids would be queuing up at the school gates every morning.The Times
This funnily uproarious, occasionally flatulent, actually quite feminist and surprisingly informative romp through the madder, badder moments of British history is perfect!The Sunday Times
Barmy Britain is a brilliantly fun piece of educational theatre that taught this history graduate a few new things and kept my son enthralled. History teachers of Great Britain, it’s time to up your game.The Daily Telegraph
As gleefully vulgar as a Roman poo stick! It's perfectly horrid and my daughter loved it!The Daily Mail
Anarchic, cheeky, illuminating fun - a little fact-packed gem. The actors are a hoot, funny and sharp, delivering the one-liners with excellent timing. Here’s a show that has brains (with the winning mix of fart-jokes) aplenty.Time Out
Foster and Fitzjohn should be in every school history class across the land. Or, given how little most of us know about history, maybe that should be every living room.The Scotsman
The Horrible Histories stage shows have become a bit of a British institution. It’s not hard to spot why. Think Fry and Laurie, mixed with Little Britain and a dash of Monty Python. It’s sparky, cheeky and covered in poo!The Guardian
A breathlessly orchestrated hour of 'edutainment' packaged as madcap tomfoolery and rumbustious songs, not least for parents who will probably wish learning could have been this much fun for them.Metro
