Great British Mysteries: 1599?
Let us take you back to the 90s... The 1590s... Follow intrepid mystery hunters Olive and Teddy in this hilarious show as they become embroiled with witches, haunted houses and the scent of Cardinal Wolsey’s conscience
Do you like mysteries? Do you like historical inaccuracies? Do you know the difference between Thomas More and Roger Moore? Then read on…
Great British Mysteries come to The Wardrobe Theatre for the first time following two sold-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe. 1599? is the follow-up to the company’s 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 2 Tudor History. Expect multi-roling, homemade sound effects and more gags than Henry VIII had wives. Seven?

Great British Mysteries are Will Close, Rose Robinson and Joseph Hancock. They create escapist, surrealist nonsense that takes you away from the real world. For 65 minutes.
