TV cheating scandal play QUIZ to transfer to the Noel Coward Theatre
With Labour of Love and Ink currently running in the West End, James Graham achieves a hat trick as his sell-out ‘major coughing hit’, Quiz, transfers to the Noël Coward Theatre. A provocative re-examination of the conviction of Charles Ingram for cheating on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, Quiz ‘highlights the dangerous blending of entertainment, politics and justice today.’ (Sunday Times). Quiz opens on 10 April 2018, with previews from 31 March, and runs for a strictly limited London season until 16 June.
James Graham commented, “Being given the chance to share Quiz with more people – and with the opportunity to develop and push our gameshow-meets-theatre concept even further – is beyond exciting for all of us.
“I would never have imagined years ago I’d get a chance to put any of my new plays into the West End. So to be able to return so quickly to the Noël Coward – which has been the happiest of homes for Labour of Love – feels surprising, and properly humbling to have the trust, belief, and support in the show from our producers, the amazing Daniel Evans, and the team of actors and creators who help me tell this gobsmacking story of the so-called Coughing Major and the most successful game show of all time.”
Quiz is a fictional imagination based on real events which took place in 2001 following an episode of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? It is not in any way connected with the makers of the programme or any of the individuals portrayed.
