Mischief Theatre, the multi award-winning company behind the smash hit comedy The Play That Goes Wrong, has today announced a UK tour of Mischief Movie Night, the improvised movie live on stage.
Direct from the West End, and nominated for the 2018 Olivier Award for ‘Best New Comedy’, Mischief Movie Night opens at Oxford Playhouse on June 6, visiting a further six venues nationwide.
Mischief Movie Night will be performed on tour by Bryony Corrigan, Josh Elliott, Dave Hearn, Harry Kershaw, Henry Lewis, Ellie Morris, Charlie Russell, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields.
They were the original cast and creators of West End smash hits, The Play That Goes Wrong, Peter Pan Goes Wrong and The Comedy About a Bank Robbery.
Mischief Movie Night invites the audience to direct the action.
You suggest a genre, location and title, and a movie is brought to life on stage, complete with rewinds, fast forwards, director’s cuts and a live score (so surely the great 1956 film, D-Day the Sixth of June, with Richard Todd & Robert Taylor, is a shoo-in for Oxford?)
Starring them, directed by you, Mischief Movie Night is a guaranteed comedy blockbuster.
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 now performs across the UK and internationally with improvised and original scripted work.
Charlie Russell said: “It’s a joy to bring Mischief Movie Night to such welcoming venues, all of which have played to 100% capacity with our Goes Wrong shows.
“Returning to our improv roots is very special for us as this is where it all began. We’re very excited!”
