This hilarious hit show is a gag-filled gallop through British history with two amazing actors playing multiple historical roles.

Can you beat battling Boudicca? Would you be a martyr for the Magna Carta? Will you lose your heart or head to horrible Henry VIII? Will Parliament survive gunpowder Guy? Dare you stand and deliver to dastardly Dick Turpin? Escape the clutches of Burke and Hare and move to the groove with party Queen Victoria!

These are just some of the fascinating characters audiences will discover in this splendiferously funny 65 minute show. History with the nasty bits left in!
