Do you like mysteries? Do you like historical inaccuracies? Do you know the difference between Thomas More and Roger Moore? Read on! This is the follow-up to the company's sold-out debut show from 2017. But set 400 years earlier. Confused? You will be. In this edition, mystery-hunters Olive and Teddy become embroiled with witches, haunted houses, and the scent of Cardinal Wolsey's conscience. It's like The Woman in Black meets Keystage Two Tudor history. Expect multi-roling, homemade sound effects and more gags than Henry VIII had wives. Seven? 'Gloriously silly, wonderfully observed' (Time Out).
