Terry Deary's Twisted Tales

Terry Deary's Twisted Tales

A brand new original comedy play written by Terry Deary, author of Horrible Histories. Co-directed by Andrew Alton and James Tanton.

See if you think you would have what it takes to survive the Black Death, join a peasant revolt, meet a scary baby farmer and lots more! Watch as three actors take on around 100 roles in as many minutes. This educational and entertaining show explores British history from the Plantagenets through to the Victorians in one wild ride. This journey focuses less on nobles and more on the complex and exciting ordinary person. The true heroes of history are not the conquering kings, the winning warriors or the empire builders. They are the peasants.

Based on a true story centred around a man called Mr Pimm. He was appointed to organise York's ragged school. Think of Mr Pimm less of a teacher, more of a child-catcher! Based at Bedern Hall, this school was an orphanage and workhouse combined known as the 'York Industrial Ragged School'. The setting for our show.

Watch how Mr Pimm battles against all odds to teach his pesky pupils a thing or two with hilarious consequences in the quest to discover, 'can the past tell the future?' Full of unexpected highs and lows, quick costume changes and sharp wit, enjoy these twisted tales of times gone by in one wild whirlwind that will leave you rolling around with laughter!


Discover a new past, our past! The past they never taught you at school.
