Mischief Theatre appears to be planning a new major production based on a magic show, according to the company's website.

According to the company's website's listings, Magic Goes Wrong is listed as a production alongside its current West End hits The Play That Goes Wrong and The Comedy About A Bank Robbery, as well as the UK tour of Bank Robbery and Broadway run of The Play That Goes Wrong.

Artwork for the upcoming production is accompanied by a link to sign-up to the company's newsletter 'to find out what's next', but no information about the show including dates, venue or ticket details.

Mischief Theatre was formed in 2008 by a group of LAMDA graduates: Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields. Their comedy plays were performed in London and at the Edinburgh Festival, before The Play That Goes Wrong opened at the Old Red Lion, and subsequently transferred to the West End's Duchess Theatre.

The play sees The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society attempting to put on a murder mystery, but failing at every hurdle.

It was followed by Comedy About A Bank Robbery, and Peter Pan Goes Wrong, which was broadcast on BBC One on New Year's Eve in 2016.

Dates, a venue and ticket information for Magic Goes Wrong are yet to be announced.
