Starring original company members Henry Lewis and Jonathan Sayer, Mind Mangler is based on a character originally created in Magic Goes Wrong by Penn Jillette, Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, Henry Shields and Teller. The work previously ran at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Off-Broadway.

Mind Mangler: A Night of Tragic Illusion is directed by Hannah Sharkey, with set design by Sara Perks, costume design by Roberto Surace, lighting design by David Howe, sound design by Helen Skiera, and video design by Gillian Tan. Ben Hart serves as magic consultant, and Steve Brown is the composer.

Mischief’s previous works include The Play That Goes Wrong, Magic Goes Wrong, Peter Pan Goes Wrong, A Comedy About a Bank Robbery, and Mischief Movie Night.
