We are DELIGHTED that our books have been adapted for a live audience by Daniel Jamieson, one of the country’s leading playwrights…

We now have TWO shows on tour!

HISTORIES OF THE UNEXPECTED: LIVE!

Histories of the Unexpected LIVE! is our original, and exciting multi-period show that demonstrates how everything has a history, even the most unexpected of subjects, and how those histories link together in unexpected ways.

What links together the Titanic, Pompeii, Neolithic cave painting, perfume, electrical experiments on the human face, Charles I, Mary Queen of Scots, scalping, Nelson, Henry VIII, Hiroshima, the Duke of Wellington, slavery, razor-gangs, Darwin, Shakespeare, mutiny, chimneys and a seventeenth century map of the world?

Well you’ll just have to come to find out…

HISTORIES OF THE UNEXPECTED: THE TUDORS!

From the critically-acclaimed Histories of the Unexpected team comes a brand new show on the TUDORS! A fast-paced show for all the family…You’ll never think about the Tudors in the same way ever again …GUARANTEED!

Why is the history of shrinking all about the Spanish Armada? Why is the history of oranges all about Tudor spies? What links Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn to windows, bells and fire? Why is the history of rings all about the death of Elizabeth I?

Well you’ll just have to come to find out…
