The Mischief team has announced a further 10 performances of Mischief Movie Night In, from 5-21 February 2021. These will be the final dates from their emergency comedy bunker, streaming live into homes for more evenings of improv. The remaining performances include a Sequel Sunday special double-bill on 7 February and a Valentine’s Day Rom-Com special on 14 February.
Audiences are tuning in from all over the world with participants from 60 different countries so far, including America, Canada, all across Europe and as far away as South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
Viewers set the genre, the location and the title, and the Mischief team improvises the movie live-streamed straight to your sofa. Each movie includes additional content as suggested via social media so audience members are encouraged to follow along with the fun on Twitter with #MischiefMovieNightIn. Every performance is its own first and last night.
The Sequel Sunday special on 7 February will see the Mischief movie makers improvise the sequel in the evening to the afternoon’s chosen movie. Don’t worry if you miss the first part – like all good sequels, the performers will kick off the evening show with a catch-up and will still be taking creative suggestions to make sure the sequel is every bit as fun as the original
The cast includes members of the original Mischief team. Full casting will be announced in due course.
Mischief Theatre Ltd was founded in 2008 by a group of acting graduates of LAMDA and began as an improvised comedy group. Mischief performs across the UK and internationally with original scripted and improvised work and also has a programme of workshops. Before the recent government restrictions The Play That Goes Wrong had returned to the Duchess Theatre and Mischief Movie Night was playing at the Vaudeville Theatre. The recent six-part TV series called The Goes Wrong Show was aired on BBC1. The Goes Wrong Show returned for the festive season on BBC1, with The Nativity Christmas special. The company is owned and controlled by its original members and is led by a creative group and its directors Henry Lewis and Jonathan Sayer.
