What is Magic Goes Wrong?

Magic Goes Wrong was written by Mischief Theatre in association with the famous magic duo Penn & Teller. The pair contributed ideas and were heavily involved throughout the rehearsal process. The show follows the classic formula of the company’s “Goes Wrong” style and sees the show spiral into mayhem. A group of unlucky magicians attempt to raise money via a charity gala, but their magic acts result in a lot more accidents than it does cash for their fundraiser.
