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.
