Kids are well and truly back to school, and it's also true of the West End.

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.
Groan Ups tickets are available now.
