We could all do with a laugh at the moment, and our friends over at Mischief have got exactly the thing! The Olivier Award-winning theatre company have announced the return of Mischief Movie Night, the improvised movie live on stage.
The audience comes up with a genre, location and title and the Mischief crew will bring your ideas to life live on stage, all with rewinds, fast forwards, directors cuts and an entirely improvised live score from musicians Yshani Perinpanayagam, Richard Baker, Jordan Clarke and Ed Zanders.
The cast includes Henry Lewis as Not Sure, Bryony Corrigan as Uncertain, Dave Hearn as No Idea, Nancy Zamit as Don’t Know Yet, Henry Shields as Couldn’t Tell You, Harry Kershaw as TBC, Ellie Morris as Who Knows, Jonathan Sayer as ??? Mike Bodie as Guess Who, Niall Ransome as Unknown and Joshua Elliott as We’ll have to see.
The improv romp will play selected outdoor dates this summer at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, Minack Theatre, Brighton Open Air Theatre and New Normal Festival with more venues to be announced.

“Since the pandemic has struck it’s been very difficult to plan any theatre so we’re presenting a piece of theatre that is entirely unplanned… what could possibly go wrong?”
