Mischief Theatre stages madcap Movie Night at Arts Theatre this Xmas

What could go wrong? Mischief Theatre, the award-winning company behind The Play That Goes Wrong, Peter Pan Goes Wrong and The Comedy About A Bank Robbery, return to the West End this Xmas with Mischief Movie Night, an improvised movie live on stage.

The show – which they’ll make up as they go along (with the help of the audience) – is being staged at the Arts Theatre, opening December 13.

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.

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.

The company is led by artistic director Henry Lewis and company director Jonathan Sayer.

Mischief Movie Night runs for 60 minutes (no interval) at the Arts Theatre from December 13 to January 27, 2018.
