Mischief Theatre announces year-long residency at Vaudeville Theatre
Mischief Theatre, the Olivier award-winning team behind The Play That Goes Wrong will take over London’s Vaudeville Theatre for a year-long residency of new West End shows. The season will begin in September 2019 with the world premiere of Groan Ups, a comedy about growing up that questions if we are the same people at 30 as we were at 13? Written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, Groan Ups will begin performances on 20 September 2019 and run until 1 December 2019. The season will have two further as yet to be announced productions, which will undoubtedly capitalise on the unique inventive hilarity which has already brought them great success in the guise of The Play That Goes Wrong, The Comedy About a Bank Robber and Peter Pan Goes Wrong. Henry Lewis, Artistic Director of Mischief Theatre, and Jonathan Sayer, Company Director of Mischief Theatre, said ‘We couldn’t be more delighted to have been invited by Nica Burns and Nimax Theatres to take over the Vaudeville Theatre for an entire year. They took a leap of faith with us back in 2014 by putting The Play That Goes Wrong on in the West End so we just hope we can do them proud!’ Kenny Wax, producer of Groan Ups and The Play That Goes Wrong, said ‘In seven years, to have graduated from a pub theatre filler slot to a three play 12 month residency at the Vaudeville, to sit alongside their two long running comedies at the Duchess and Criterion, a record breaking run on Broadway and productions currently running on every continent except Antarctica, the meteoric rise of this extraordinarily talented group of writers and actors seems to know no bounds. As Producers we are delighted to have guided their journey and become their friends.’ Nica Burns, co-founder of Nimax Theatres, said ‘We jumped at the chance to partner with Mischief and their producers Kenny Wax and Stage Presence to present a truly record breaking three brand new comedies in one year at the Vaudeville.' Nica Burns and Nimax Theatres continue the winning formula of year-long residencies following the critically acclaimed seasons by Dominic Dromgoole's Oscar Wilde season at the Vaudeville Theatre in 2017/2018 and Kenneth Branagh's season at the Garrick Theatre in 2015. Casting for Groan Ups includes original company members Dave Hearn, Henry Lewis, Charlie Russell Jonathan Sayer, Henry Shields, Nancy Zamit alongside Bryony Corrigan.
