About Magic Goes Wrong

Welcome to the latest Goes Wrong epic from Mischief Theatre, whose The Play That Goes Wrong, The Comedy About A Bank Robbery and more have delighted so many comedy lovers. This time around, thanks to the brilliantly silly Penn Jillette, Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, Henry Shields and Teller, the show delivers an extremely funny evening of 'grand illusion' that goes spectacularly awry. The amateur magicians that star in the show combine magic and comedy to thrilling effect, creating a stage event that has audiences in fits of helpless laughter. Thank you, Mischief Company, for the giggles!

What's the story of Magic Goes Wrong?

Magic Goes Wrong presents a team of amateur magicians determined to showcase their best tricks. They're doing it at a charity event and it doesn't take long before more or less everything goes horribly wrong, including a spectacularly gory 'sawing a woman in half' scene. Every time a trick goes belly-up, their fundraising target increases. You'll love this dazzling, fast-paced collection of tricks and comedy sketches, starring Henry Lewis as the mentalist called 'the Mind Mangler' and Dave Hearn as the Criss Angel look-alike 'The Blade'. Jonathan Sayer plays the Mind Mangler’s useless stooge Mickey. And audiences adore the non-stop catalogue of hilarious magical disasters that unfolds. 

Who is on the Magic Goes Wrong creative team?

This crazy-funny production is directed by Adam Meggido. Ali James is the movement director and Hannah Sharkey is the associate director. Amy Marchant is the resident director. The design team consists of designer Will Bowen, costume designer Robert Surace, David Howe the lighting designer, Paul Groothius the sound designer, and Duncan McLean the video and projection designer.

What are people saying about Magic Goes Wrong?

  • The Times - “gloriously silly.”

  • The Sun - “It'll have you spellbound for the evening.”
