Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

MISCHIEF Theatre, the award-winning company behind The Play That Goes Wrong, Peter Pan Goes Wrong and The Comedy About A Bank Robbery, are returning to the West End with Mischief Movie Night.

An improvised movie live on stage, Mischief Movie Night will play at the Arts Theatre for a strictly limited season – from December 13, 2017 to January 27, 2018.

Returning to their comedy roots, Mischief Theatre will bring the audiences’ genre, location and title suggestions to life complete with rewinds, fast forwards, directors’ cuts and a live score.

The cast includes Josh Elliot as Not Sure, Dave Hearn as Uncertain, Harry Kershaw as No Idea, Henry Lewis as Don’t Know Yet, Ellie Morris as Couldn’t Tell You, Charlie Russell as TBC, Jonathan Sayer as Who Knows and Henry Shields as Guess Who. They will be joined onstage by musicians Chris Ash and Richard Baker.

Further casting will be announced in due course.

Mischief Movie Night is created by Mischief Theatre, with set designs by Tony Award-winning Nigel Hook and lighting by David Howe. Adam Meggido is the improvisation consultant.

Mischief Movie Night is produced in the West End by Kenny Wax Ltd, Stage Presence Ltd and Mischief Theatre Ltd.

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.

This Christmas, Mischief Theatre will have three shows running in the West End. Their Olivier and Tony Award-winning production of The Play That Goes Wrong is currently at the Duchess Theatre and running on Broadway; it will also complete a UK tour from January 2018. Their other production The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is currently at the Criterion Theatre.

The company is led by Artistic Director Henry Lewis and Company Director Jonathan Sayer.
