Magic Goes Wrong

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Mischief Theatre have combined forces with legendary magicians Penn & Teller to create Magic Goes Wrong, a spellbinding new show.

Combining the magic of theatre and on-stage trickery, the play sees the cast don their top hat and tails as they become magicians, attempting to raise as much money as possible at a charity event. As the accidents spiral out of control, so does their fundraising target and your enjoyment!

Coming together in 2008, Mischief Theatre have grown to become a leading acting company, with their plays being performed around the world. From the same company who brought The Play That Goes Wrong and The Comedy About a Bank Robbery to the West End, Magic Goes Wrong is sure to be an exciting, innovative and hilarious comedy that will leave you smiling.

Magic Goes Wrong is booking until 2 May 2021 at the Vaudeville Theatre, London.

What’s the Story?
