production team

Raucous, thought-provoking but mostly very funny. There's even a song or two.

Four women multi-role their way through imagined historical scenarios inspired by real events.

Horrible Histories meets 39 Steps. This is a dangerously entertaining show for adults.

Fresh from its first performance at the Harringay Fringe Festival, co-produced by Newsroom Theatre company, we present an indoor version of the show. This time without geese.

This is a show which tackles the tough questions -

What happens if the wrong address is printed in the 18th century Covent Garden catalogue of prostitutes?

How does gender equality work when you’re the Queen of England?

If I ride a bike will I die, or worse, get aroused?

Tales from history, that definitely didn’t happen.

Latecomers may not be admitted. Please arrive in good time for the start time of 7:45pm.
Under 18s are not permitted into the theatre for this performance. 
No re-admittance once the performance has commenced. Refunds and exchanges are not available.

Beth Organ

Bridging the North/South divide, Beth is a proud northerner and naturalised Londoner est. 2010. She trained at the Royal Central School of Screech and Trauma, and since graduating hasn’t been in anything you would have seen unless you caught the back of her head on Silent Witness that one time. Her work ranges from brand new musical theatre to Shakespeare, short film, voice-over, research & development, and devised work, with particular interest in theatre as a platform for political debate ‘cos shouting into the void just doesn’t cut it anymore.
Most recently, Beth toured as Tess in Hotbuckle Theatre Company’s Tess of the D’Urbervilles, and provided the voice for shipboard-computer ‘SARA’ in VR game Space Salvage, all her nerdy dreams come true.
Beth can greet you in high-elven, and her other interests include long walks, sweet cocktails and smashing the patriarchy.

Kirsty Jackson

Kirsty Jackson is a dog-mum, a gymnast and a complete barmpot - otherwise known as a northerner. Hailing from Preston, Kirsty moved down to Essex to study Physical Theatre at East 15 Acting School in 2012. Since then, Kirsty has rolled round the world, literally, in a giant wheel, puppeteered a giant bear and worn a giant dress while trying to drink tea. Being only 5'2", this was a feat in itself. Coincidentally, The Wheel House (Acrojou), Wild Wilma (Pleasance Theatre) and The Importance of Being Earnest (Tabard Theatre) were some of her favourite jobs. You may also have seen her on screen chatting to meerkats (Compare the Market), in a slow-motion car crash (Autopsy, ITV), or taking her eye out with a royal teaspoon (Casual Violence). Kirsty is very much looking forward to going back in time and playing a whole host of characters throughout the ages. You may even hear an accent or two!

Kira Morsley

Originally from Australia and trained in Musical Theatre, Kira moved to London in 2011 after a year playing a Venetian Gondolier in Macau. This is possibly the most ridiculous job she’s ever done, however a stint as a Vampire at the Edinburgh Fringe and a narcissistic bird in Seussical the Musical are definitely contenders. Her other notable roles include Christine in Maury Yeston’s Phantom (not the other one) and Kate Hardcastle in The Kissing Dance, both of which earned her Best Female Performance nominations at the Off West End Awards. She’s also spent eight seasons bringing Christmas to North Norfolk as a vocalist in the Thursford Christmas Spectacular, the largest Christmas show in Europe. In 2018 she wrote and produced the one-woman cabaret Accidental Feminist at Above the Arts, and loves working on new writing. She’s glad she’s good at accents, as only once in her career has she been able to use her own. You can find her on Instagram at @kiramorsley, although she mostly posts pictures of her cats.

Kathryn Pridgeon

Kathryn, a Mountview 2020 graduate, is thrilled to be making her professional debut in She Said What?!. Kathryn's theatre experiences include the role of Lina Lamont in Singin' in the Rain, Clown in The 39 Steps, Jenny in It Shoulda Been You, Flora in Flora the Red Menace and ensemble roles in The Producers, Dogfight and Heathers. Kathryn also choreographed a production of Oklahoma! in 2019 and would like to ensure her role as Dead Body in her school production of The Vaudavillains is not neglected. When she isn't lying around, Kathryn enjoys dancing, playing piano and writing her own sketches.
