“Hot on the heels of Groan Ups comes the latest from all conquering Mischief Theatre. They are now a long way from their debut at the Old Red Lion pub theatre and have had a string of hits in the same vein as The Play That Goes Wrong. The formula shows no sign of flagging and this show is created with the help of legendary magicians Penn and Teller whose mind-boggling tricks very seldom go wrong. Things are certainly going very right for Mischief, and it is likely that this show will only add to their stable of hits.”
“The clever so and sos behind The Play That Goes Wrong and The Comedy About A Bank Robbery (Mischief Theatre) are back with another new show. This time, you guessed it, Magic Goes Wrong. Perfect family entertainment.”

Tickets from £27.50


In the next ‘Goes Wrong’ comedy to hit the West End, the original Mischief company play a hapless gang of magicians presenting a charity event .

As the accidents spiral out of control, so does their fundraising target!

*Penn & Teller are co-creators of the show and won’t be appearing on stage.

Age Recommendation: 10+

Critic reviews

Eminently predictable but also predictably good fun

Lyn Gardner for Stagedoor

Magic Goes Wrong makes for a night of sure-fire entertainment

· London Box Office

Mischief Theatre may have a formula but its shows are far from formulaic

· Londonist

All in all, Mischief Theatre have done it again with another fun night at the theatre where more goes right than wrong

· West End Wilma

It’s the best “worst” magic show in town

· The Upcoming

The show is unashamedly silly but also affectionately celebratory of a kind of variety theatre that may have long vanished - but makes a welcome return here

· London Theatre

A terrific new helping of the art of comic incompetence

· The Telegraph

The whole evening is a delight from start to finish - something you come to expect at a Mischief night

· Broadway World

Despite its flaws, this production has some truly spectacular tricks

· A Younger Theatre

It’s an amiable show that makes good use of audience participation and neatly skewers the more ludicrous reaches of the magic industry

· Financial Times

The ‘Goes Wrong’ franchise potters on, this time with added magic

· Time Out

Mischief is so adept at developing rapport with an audience, it works anyway

· Evening Standard

Peppered among the deliberate cock-ups are some genuine magic skits

· The Arts Desk

Stunts and tricks go awry in this slapstick romp, though the running gag makes it hard to conjure suspense

· The Guardian

The highs really are quite high

· WhatsOnStage

Funny and entertaining, if under-powered, fusion of magic and comedy from Mischief Theatre

· The Stage

Tickets from £27.50
