Reading Rep

'Not just a story, but our story, the story that we call the history of the world. Shall we begin?'
E. H. Gombrich
 

This world premiere adaptation based on the international bestseller takes us on a light-hearted, whistle-stop tour through the centuries from the big bang to the present day. Meet colourful, historical figures, take to the great battlefields, marvel at fabulous works of art and ground-breaking scientific discoveries. Join us on a fun-filled trip through time and discover the extraordinary achievements of mankind and its frailties.

At 26, Ernst Gombrich, a brilliant but unemployed academic, is invited to write an entire history of the world. In just six weeks! The book he writes is an instant success, becomes an international bestseller and is published in 25 languages. Join him, Ilse and Otto as they lead you with infectious enthusiasm through the fascinating, entertaining and heart-warming history of the world.

Watermill outreach touring is generously supported by
