Magic Goes Wrong, an evening of grand illusion, back on the London stage this Christmas!

The West End is in desperate need of holiday magic this year and Mischief Theatre is set to deliver! Their critically acclaimed show, Magic Goes Wrong, was met with a fleet of four- and five-star reviews when it premiered last year and is now set to come back to the Vaudeville Theatre in London to play a strictly limited season from 10 December 2020 until 31 January 2021 with social distancing measures in place.

Magic Goes Wrong's eagerly anticipated return is set to star Bryony Corrigan, Dave Hearn, Henry Lewis, Henry Shields, Jonathan Sayer, Nancy Zamit, and Roxy Faridany with Lauren Ingram and Natasha Culley completing the cast.

Magic Goes Wrong now socially distanced

Seating capacity has been sawn in half in accordance with current government guidelines and the COVID-secure venue will be pulling several other measures out of a hat to keep you safe. Ticket buyers will be guaranteed a free ticket exchange or refund in the event of a confirmed performance cancellation and can be sure to book in confidence

What is Mischief Theatre Company's Magic Goes Wrong about?

The story of Magic Goes Wrong follows a magician named Sophisticato, who is putting on a charity fundraiser for magic disasters in memory of his late father, who had always discouraged his son from performing dangerous magic. 

The fundraiser plays host to a series of ridiculous rotating acts, including the mind-reading Mind Mangler who might not be so talented after all alongside tough guy The Blade, who bites off more than he can chew; and lastly a contortionist and her foil: Spitzmaus and Bär.

In true Goes Wrong fashion, the mishaps begin to pile up, but so does their ultimate fundraising goal. Filled with shady magic tricks, miscoordination, language barriers, absentminded performers, and more, this hysterical show is just the ticket to cure all of this year's woes!

Magic Goes Wrong creative team

The play is directed in London's West End by Adam Meggido and features design by Will Bowen, costume design by Roberto Surace, lighting design by David Howe, sound design by Paul Groothuis, and video and projection design by Duncan McLean. The creative team also has magic consultant Ben Hart, composer Steve Brown, movement director Ali James, associate director Hannah Sharkey, and resident director Amy Marchant.
