Groan Ups – The hilarious tribulations of growing up

Thank you to the Mischief Theatre company for bringing us yet another hilarious, ridiculous comedy play. This one is predicted to have audiences rolling in the aisles as usual. It must be such fun working with them – imagine, making hundreds of people laugh themselves silly every day for months on end. It must feel fantastic!

This latest mini-masterpiece from the Mischief Theatre is written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, and is directed by Kirsty Patrick Ward. It's a fresh new comedy that examines the strange, weird and wonderful world of growing up.

Are you the same person at thirty years old that you were when you were thirteen? Did you ever grow out of that massive, painful school crush, the one that kept you up nights and made you idiotically speechless in your loved one's presence? And does life at school drive the future, leaving us somehow trapped in the past for the rest of our lives? They're important questions to ask, and you'll be amused to know that absolutely none of them are answered by this crazy-funny play.

This theatre company has been making us giggle since they formed in 2008. Groan Ups sees the actors portraying an unruly classroom of anarchic teenagers, taking us through childhood and onwards to a painfully funny adulthood. It's their first new play since 2016 and they're set to blast into the West End yet again, with all their comedy guns blazing. Term time kicks off on 20th September 2019. Your venue is the magnificent Vaudeville Theatre.

In fact the Vaudeville is going to be Mischief Theatre's home right up until August 2020, thanks to a series of three brand new plays, kicking of with Groan Ups. All about the awkward period between adolescence and adulthood, it’s nothing if not inventive. In fact this Oscar-winner of a theatre company has pulled out all the stops this time, putting school and adulthood well and truly under the microscope.

The cast includes Bryony Corrigan, Dave Hearn, Henry Lewis, Charlie Russell, Jonathan Sayer, Henry Shields and Nancy Zamit. If you loved The Play That Goes Wrong and their other huge smash hit, The Comedy About A Bank Robbery, you'll love this. If you're simply dying for a brilliant comedy, this is it.

Who is this show for?
This play is perfect for people aged 13+.
