Noel Coward Theatre, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

The West End premiere of Quiz at the Noel Coward Theatre.

Following a sell-out run at Chichester Festival Theatre, James Graham’s Quiz comes to the Noel Coward Theatre for a limited season in Spring 2018.

Inspired by an infamous moment in television history, where a game show contestant on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire was accused of cheating, Quiz explores both popular culture and the speculative nature of justice.

Quiz runs from 31 March 2018 until 16 June 2018 at the Noel Coward Theatre.



A) A new play by acclaimed writer James Graham (Ink and Labour of Love)

B) A provocative re-examination of the conviction of Charles Ingram, ‘the coughing Major’, for cheating, following his appearance on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?

C) A hilarious celebration of the great tradition of the British quiz show?

D) A razor-sharp analysis of the 21st century’s dangerous new attitude to truth and lies?

Answer: You decide.

QUIZ is a fictional imagination based on real events which took place in 2001 following an episode of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? It is not in any way connected with the makers of the programme or any of the individuals portrayed.


To be announced.


Directed by Daniel Evans, written by James Graham, with design by Robert Jones, music and sound by Ben and Max Ringham, and video by Tim Reid.
