James Graham’s Quiz announces West End transfer
James Graham’s Quiz is to transfer to the West End next year.
Directed by Daniel Evans, the production will open at the Noel Coward Theatre in London on April 10 and will run until June 16, with previews beginning March 31.
Based on the conviction of the “coughing major” Charles Ingram, who famously cheated on the television show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, the production premiered at the Chichester Festival Theatre earlier this year.
Graham said: “Being given the chance to share Quiz with more people – and with the opportunity to develop and push our gameshow-meets-theatre concept even further – is beyond exciting for all of us.
“I would never have imagined years ago I’d get a chance to put any of my new plays into the West End. So to be able to return so quickly to the Noel Coward – which has been the happiest of homes for Labour of Love – feels surprising, and properly humbling to have the trust, belief, and support in the show from our producers, the amazing Daniel Evans, and the team of actors and creators who help me tell this gobsmacking story.”
Quiz has design by Robert Jones, music and sound by Ben and Max Ringham and movement by Naomi Said.
It is produced by William Village, Playful Productions and Chichester Festival Theatre.
