Groan Ups Tickets

The first show in the Mischief Theatre’s year-long residency at the Vaudeville Theatre, Groan Ups is a brand-new play which looks at how people grow up. Are we the same at 30 as we were at 13? Seeing if schools determine our future, join the cast of Groan Ups as they go through the painstaking troubles of adolescence into adulthood. 

Groan Ups is the first of three productions to play in the Vaudeville Theatre as part of their residency. The other two productions in the season will be the new show Magic Goes Wrong, developed with world-renowned magicians Penn and Teller, and another yet to be announced production. 

It will also be the first time the original Mischief Theatre company of Henry Shields, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Lewis will perform in the West End since 2016, when their play The Comedy About A Bank Robbery opened at the Criterion Theatre. 

Groan Ups is at the Vaudeville Theatre from 20th September.

Dave Hearn and Nancy Zamit: 'Groan Ups is an old school farce, and Mischief's wordiest play yet'

Since Mischief Theatre first made their presence known in the West End with The Play That Goes Wrong, they've become one of the leading theatre companies in the country. With critically-acclaimed productions on both sides of the pond, as well as three Mischief Theatre productions running concurrently in the West End, it's fair to say this is Mischief Theatre's time to shine.

Casting has been announced for the first production in Mischief Theatre’s upcoming year-long West End residency at the Vaudeville Theatre, Groan Ups. The new comedy is all about, as the title might suggest, growing up.
