Groan Ups: Synopsis

From the company of The Play That Goes Wrong comes a new comedy all about growing up.

Are we the same people at 30 as we were at 13? Does school life determine our future? Do we ever grow out of our school crush? Playing an unruly classroom of kids and anarchic high school teenagers, through to the aches and pains of adulthood, the original Mischief company are back in the West End with their first new play since 2016.

The cast includes original company members Dave Hearn, Henry Lewis, Charlie Russell Jonathan Sayer, Henry Shields, Nancy Zamit alongside Bryony Corrigan.

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.”

“Mischief Theatre is incredibly grateful for this amazing opportunity and now we can make sure the laughs continue for audiences.”
