In the second of a monthly series of Mischief Theatre post-show Q&As in the West End, I’ll talk to the cast and creatives for brand-new show Groan Ups, which launches the company’s year-long residency at the Vaudeville Theatre.
Do we choose who we become?
Is the story of our lives already written?
Do we ever really grow up?
Are we the same people at 30 as we were at 13?
Does school life determine our future?
Do we ever grow out of our school crush?
From the Olivier Award-winning parents of The Play That Goes Wrong, The Comedy About a Bank Robbery and Peter Pan Goes Wrong comes a brand-new comedy all about growing up.
In Groan Ups, follow an unruly classroom of six-year-olds on their journey through anarchic high school teenagedom to the challenges of adulthood.
The original Mischief company are back in the West End with their first new play since 2016, written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields.
The cast of Groan Ups are Bryony Corrigan (as Chemise/Miss Murray), Dave Hearn (Paul), Henry Lewis (Spencer), Charlie Russell (Katie), Jonathan Sayer (Simon), Henry Shields (Archie) and Nancy Zamit (Moon). They’re joined by George Haynes, Krystal Dockery and Holly Sumpton.
