Mind Mangler: Member of the Tragic Circle, the new Mischief comedy from Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields—the trio best known for The Play That Goes Wrong and BBC's The Goes Wrong Show—officially opens its tour of the U.K. January 7 at the Wyvern Theatre, Swindon.
Following sold-out performances at the Edinburgh Fringe, Mind Mangler was developed into a two-act show and stars Lewis as the Mind Mangler and Sayer as his Stooge. Tom Wainwright is the understudy.
The new tour, which previewed January 6 at The Mack Theatre at Mountview, will subsequently visit over 20 venues nationwide with West End performances at the Garrick Theatre January 15, February 5, and March 26.
In the comedy, the Mind Mangler returns to the stage following a disappointing two-night run at the Luton Holiday Inn Conference Centre. His new solo spectacular is predicted to spiral into chaos as he attempts to read your mind.
Hannah Sharkey directs with set design by Sara Perks, video design by Gillian Tan, lighting design by David Howe, costume design by Roberto Surace, and production management by Tom Nickson. Ben Hart is the magic consultant.
Mischief’s stage successes include The Play That Goes Wrong, Magic Goes Wrong, Peter Pan Goes Wrong, A Comedy About a Bank Robbery, and Mischief Movie Night.
