Magic Goes Wrong will reopen in London’s West End in December.

The Mischief Theatre Company production will play at the Vaudeville Theatre between 10 December and 31 January 2021.


The comedy play follows a group of hapless magicians as they try to stage a charity fundraising event but find their tricks ruined by a string of unforeseeable accidents that spiral out of control.

Magic Goes Wrong is written by Mischief Theatre Company’s Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, Henry Shields together with American magician duo Penn & Teller

The show originally opened in December 2019 before being forced to close in March due to the theatre shutdown.

The cast will feature Bryony Corrigan, Roxy Faridany, Dave Hearn, Henry Lewis, Henry Shields, Jonathan Sayer, Nancy Zamit, Natasha Culley and Lauren Ingram.

Henry Lewis, Company Director of Mischief, said: “We at Mischief are absolutely delighted to be back at the Vaudeville Theatre presenting the same show, now with less assurance and no insurance.”

The show will feature a socially distanced audience and other health and safety procedures.

Producer Kenny Wax added: “We are one of a handful of small / middle scale productions who have low enough running costs to open with a socially distanced audience and even though we are unlikely to make a profit we will be employing over 100 staff across the three productions in London and Bath.

“We are still taking a significant risk without a government backed insurance scheme to cover further business cancellation due to COVID ’19.”

Magic Goes Wrong joins The Play That Goes Wrong in reopening in the West End with the latter beginning performances from 19 November.
