After performances of Mischief Movie Night were suspended at the Vaudeville Theatre last year, the improvisational film show has found a new London home. Mischief Movie Night will now run at Riverside Studios from 1 July - 1 August for in-person performances, with livestreaming options available during the run.

Mischief Movie Night sees cast members create a new film based entirely on audience suggestions. During the run, there will be a "Sequel Sunday" on 18 July with two consecutive shows following the same story, with a "Trilogy Day" on 31 July.

The Mischief Movie Night cast includes Mike Bodie, Joshua Elliott, Dave Hearn, Harry Kershaw, Henry Lewis, Niall Ransome, Charlie Russell, Jonathan Sayer, Lauren Shearing, Henry Shields and Nancy Zamit.

Mischief Theatre will continue to have a West End presence though, with The Play That Goes Wrong reopening at the Duchess Theatre in June. Magic Goes Wrong is currently scheduled to resume at the Vaudeville Theatre from October 2021.

In a four star review for of Mischief Movie Night at the Vaudeville Theatre, Matt Wolf said: "it's a comic elixir... you can't keep entertainment this fizzy bottled up for long."

Riverside Studios will also be home to a London revival of Happy Days, starring Lisa Dwan. Trevor Nunn directs, with more information on Happy Days here.
