Historia is a Registered Charity aimed at advancing education through the encouragement of the arts.   Specifically, it has established a theatre company to stage plays that have their source or inspiration in history.  Although Historia has been in existence since 1997, it decided to seek charitable trust status during 2002, and was registered by the Charity Commission on 2 October 2003.  Its founder, Catherine Price, is an actor and historian.  Writing as Kate Glover, she has written and adapted a number of works, some of them highlighting important anniversaries.  Her 2005 production, FIVE ELEVEN, marked the 400th anniversary of the gunpowder plot, and in 2007 she wrote and produced An African's Blood, to mark the bicentenary of the passage through parliament of an act to abolish the slave trade.  Judenfrei, Kate's moving play about two Jewish lawyers in Hitler's Berlin, was performed in 2011.  In 2012-13, Historia directed Sally Sheringham's play about the Suffragette movement, The Sound of Breaking Glass.  Kate Glover's play Queen Anne ran in London from 8 July to 3 August 2014, and her play Magna Carta, which marked the 800th anniversary of this cornerstone of the English and many other judicial systems, toured during 2015.  Kate's play Fire and Phoenix, which marks the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London, opened in London on 15 November 2016.
