Mischief Theatre, the company behind The Play That Goes Wrong, is to take over the West End’s Vaudeville Theatre for a year-long residency.
It will present a season of new work at the theatre, including a comedy called Groan Ups, which will open the season in September 2019.
In total, the theatre company will present three shows over the year.
Mischief Theatre artistic director Henry Lewis 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.”
Groan Ups producer Kenny Wax said “the meteoric rise of this extraordinarily talented group of writers and actors seems to know no bounds”.
“As producers we are delighted to have guided their journey and become their friends,” he added.
Groan Ups is written by Henry Shields, with Jonathan Sayer and Lewis.
It will be directed by Kirsty Patrick Ward and runs until December 1, with press night on October 10.
Groan Ups is produced by Kenny Wax and Stage Presence.
