As part of an ongoing series, I’ve chaired post-show talks with various Mischief Theatre casts this year, all of whom waxed lyrical about the brilliance of the company founders. Last week, I had a chance to pose questions to those original mischief-makers themselves at their brand-new comedy Groan Ups.
Love London Love Culture rounds up the reviews for Groan Ups, the first production in Mischief Theatre’s year-long season at the Vaudeville Theatre.
Groan Ups has hamster substitutions, unexpected subtler laughs and a moment of real pathos before it swizzles into something more poignant.
If these first-look photos of Mischief Theatre’s Groan Ups don’t put you in touch with your ‘inner child’, we don’t know what will. Just two days to go until the brand-new comedy officially opens. Time to get booking!
It’s cruel to ask one of the original Mischief Theatre company to choose their favourite comedy to date? But we couldn’t resist. We caught up with the fabulous Charlie Russell about Groan Ups and much more. Time to get booking!
Less than a week until Mischief Theatre’s brand-new comedy Groan Ups officially opens and we’re loving all the audience buzz on social media. Also on Twitter, we’ve been carefully studying the cast’s back-to-school lessons.
As term starts this Friday (20 September 2019) for Groan Ups, the inaugural production in Mischief Theatre’s year-long season of new work at the West End’s Vaudeville Theatre, sneak a peek at what’s to follow: Magic Goes Wrong, the company’s highly anticipated collaboration with legendary magicians.

As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A programme, and the second in a monthly Mischief Theatre series, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock talks to the cast and creatives for brand-new show Groan Ups, which launches the company’s year-long residency at the Vaudeville Theatre. Got any questions?
Mischief Theatre, the Olivier Award-winning company behind The Play That Goes Wrong, today announces the full cast for their brand-new comedy Groan Ups, running from 20 September until 1 December 2019 (press night is 10 October) at London’s Vaudeville Theatre.
There are plenty of laughs to be had in the touring Comedy About A Bank Robbery at the King’s. There are also a couple of gasp-inducing coups de theatre.
“Inventive,” “entertaining,” “excellent” – Audiences have leaped onto social media to share their excitement about Bowie-inspired coming-of-age story Heroes. Take a look at what they had to say, then book your tickets for the show’s final week!

Following sell-out runs at the Brighton and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, Heroes, a coming-of-age tale set in the 1970s, comes to the Drayton Arms Theatre this month. The play, written by Bebe Barry & Tony Barry, runs from 29 April to 11 May. Book your tickets now!
With physical humour, highbrow theatrical humour, lowbrow theatrical humour, musical theatre moments, live stunts and more, Peter Pan Goes Wrong is highly recommended for fun-loving families of all ages.
Mischief Movie Night is enormous fun and the cast clearly loves what they do. The sense of kinship is refreshing and invigorating as we giggle alongside the actors on stage at the absurdity of what we are asking of them.
If it’s an evening of high-brow culture you are after then The Comedy About a Bank Robbery is definitely is not the show for you, but if you want to just sit back and watch a bit of silliness then this will tick the right boxes.
