Young Herbert's Horrors - Birmingham Rep
Dates & Times
There are currently no events listed for this show.

A swashbuckling pirate adventure with a twist .

Young Herbert is a little horror. Living on a boat should be the ideal life for a wannabe pirate, but the boat's grounded until Herbert can learn to tidy his cabin, eat his greens and be more polite. A big storm brews up when Herbert is sent home from school and Mum calls on Great Uncle Albatross - navy captain and scourge of all pirates - to warn him of the dangers of rebellion.

But who is Great Uncle Albatross and do his cautionary tales really have the power to make Young Herbert behave? Or will they just give Young Herbert the horrors?

Featuring swashbuckling verse, jaunty music, gallows humour and the obligatory parrot, Young Herbert's Horrors is Justin Coe's brand new spoken word show for children, following the highly popular Big Wow, Small Wonder.


Our First Stages shows are the ideal way to introduce a new generation to the delights of theatre and are especially created for nursery and primary school aged children.




If your kids love the high seas and pirate-adventures this is the show for you… A one-man show packed with poetry, jokes and a real feast for the imagination - we had a great family outing courtesy of Herbert!
