Woeful Second World War is the latest installment in Terry Deary’s hugely popular Horrible Histories series. As with previous adaptations, Birmingham Stage Company brings the story to the stage using 3D Bogglevision, giving young audiences the chance to see what WW2 was really like.

Woeful Second World War centres on Alf and Sally, who get evacuated to darkest Wales, away from the damp shelters and nightly bombings of their home city – only to encounter rotten rations, scary schools and even scarier new parents. In the second half of the show the audience wears 3D specs to see the Bogglevision effects, ss the German bombers make their deadly journey towards Coventry.

Woeful Second World War is suitable for ages 6+

This show is presented alongside Frightful First World War.
