Olivier award-winning comedy favourites, Mischief, announce the very first UK tour of Mind Mangler: Member of the Tragic Circle written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, the writing (and performing) trio best known for The Play That Goes Wrong and BBC TV’s The Goes Wrong Show.
In response to sold out performances at the Edinburgh Fringe, Mind Mangler has now been developed into a two-act show for a major UK tour.
Starring Henry Lewis as the ‘Mind Mangler’ and Jonathan Sayer as his ‘Stooge’, the show will open at Wyvern Theatre, Swindon on 7 January 2023, visiting Cardiff, Milton Keynes, Birmingham, Cheltenham, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Brighton, Nottingham, Newcastle, Wimbledon, Salford and Southampton, to name a few. The tour will culminate with a week at Theatre Royal Bath, from 18 to 22 April 2023. Tickets are on sale today (at most venues).
Mind Mangler is based on a character originally created in Magic Goes Wrong by Penn Jillette, Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, Henry Shields & Teller. Directed by Hannah Sharkey.
Join the ‘Mind Mangler’ as he returns to the stage following a disappointing two-night run at the Luton Holiday Inn conference centre, suite 2b. His new solo spectacular is predicted to spiral into chaos as he attempts to read your mind…
The ‘Mind Mangler’ persuaded the following producers to back this production – Kenny Wax, Stage Presence and Kevin McCollum. (They regret it).
Mischief’s other stage successes include The Play That Goes Wrong (West End, Broadway and on tour across the UK and internationally with productions staged on every continent – with the exception of Antarctica), Magic Goes Wrong, Peter Pan Goes Wrong, A Comedy About A Bank Robbery and Mischief Movie Night. Their ‘Royal Television Society’ award-winning BBC One series The Goes Wrong Show aired in December 2019 with a Christmas special, with further episodes in early 2020, and a hit Nativity special last Christmas. The second series aired in September 2021 on BBC One and iPlayer.
