Mischief’s new comedy Mind Mangler: Member of the Tragic Circle is set to open in the West End, as the production company celebrates the 10th anniversary of The Play That Goes Wrong. The show opens at the Apollo Theatre on 14 March.

Written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, Mind Mangler is based on a character originally created in Magic Goes Wrong – part of Mischief's Go Wrong series – and will star Lewis and Sayer.

Mind Mangler began at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2022 and was later developed into a two-act show, which toured the UK and ran in New York in 2023.

On the announcement, Lewis and Sayer said: “We could not be more excited for Mind Mangler: Member of the Tragic Circle to be appearing in the West End this spring. Touring the UK with this show in early 2023 was an absolute joy and we’re so looking forward to bringing it to new audiences."

Mind Mangler is directed by Hannah Sharkey, with set design by Sara Perks, costume design by Roberto Surace, lighting design by David Howe, sound design by Helen Skiera, and video design by Gillian Tan. The magic consultant is Ben Hart and the composer is Steve Brown.

The run will end on 28 April.
