Mischief Theatre’s two smash hit shows, The Play That Goes Wrong and The Comedy About A Bank Robbery are still running concurrently in the West End at the Duchess and Criterion Theatres respectively and will continue even as Mischief produce three brand new comedies throughout their year at the Vaudeville.
So far, only one new of the new shows has been announced: Groan Ups, written by the central trio of Artistic Director Henry Lewis, Company Director Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields. From all the information released so far, it’s a comedy about growing up, and the company will play ‘an unruly classroom of kids and anarchic high school teenagers, through to the aches and pains of adulthood.’ More shows are to be announced in due course.
The brainchild of a group of students from London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA), Mischief Theatre have also recently completed a two-year Broadway run of The Play That Goes Wrong. Given that they were founded only a decade ago, their rise can only be described as meteoric.
For those who guffawed through one or both of their hits so far, this Mischief Theatre residency is set to bring the house down at the Vaudeville Theatre.
