Mischief Theatre

If you’re looking for hilarious comedy, rib-tickling slapstick or a rollicking good time, then Mischief Theatre’s productions are perfect for you!

Who doesn’t get up to a little Mischief from time to time? Certainly not the Mischief Theatre Company, the comic geniuses behind the Olivier Award-winning The Play That Goes Wrong and nominee The Comedy About A Bank Robbery!

Now famous worldwide for their unique brand of chaotic comedy, Mischief Theatre was founded in 2008 as an improvised comedy troupe by a group of graduates from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). Famously only having a handful of paying customers at their first full-length performance of The Play That Goes Wrong, Mischief’s rise in recent years has been stratospheric, and they now have award-winning shows running on every continent except Antarctica.

From September 2019, the Company will take residency at the West End’s Vaudeville Theatre to present three new productions.

The Mischief Theatre residency will open with new comedy Groan Ups, all about growing up and asking the question: are we the same people at 30 as we were at 13? The cast includes original company members Dave Hearn, Henry Lewis, Charlie Russell Jonathan Sayer, Henry Shields, Nancy Zamit alongside Bryony Corrigan.

This will be followed by Magic Goes Wrong, an evening of grand illusion – and hapless endeavour – created alongside magic legends Penn & Teller. The company will portray an unfortunate gang of magicians presenting a charity event.

The third production in the residency is yet to be announced – but you can expect inventive hilarity to abound.

If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
