The creators of The Play That Goes Wrong and The Comedy About A Bank Robbery kick off a one-year residency at the Vaudeville Theatre with Groan Ups, a brand-new comedy all about growing up.
Are we the same people at 30 as we were at 13? Does school life determine our future? Do we ever grow out of our school crush? Playing an unruly classroom of kids and anarchic high school teenag-ers, through to the aches and pains of adulthood, the original Mischief Theatre company are back in the West End with their first new play since 2016.
The cast of Groan Ups includes original company members Dave Hearn, Henry Lewis, Charlie Russell, Jonathan Sayer, Henry Shields, Nancy Zamit alongside Bryony Corrigan. The cast is completed by George Haynes, Krystal Dockery and Holly Sumpton.
Mischief Theatre was founded in 2008 by a group of graduates of The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) and began as an improvised comedy group. Mischief Theatre performs across the UK and internationally with improvised and original scripted work.
Their other production The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is currently at the Criterion Theatre and on a national UK tour whilst The Play That Goes Wrong is also on a national UK tour and is has recently completed a two year run on Broadway. The company is led by Artistic Director Henry Lewis and Company Director Jonathan Sayer.
