What’s On: Mischief’s Magic Goes Wrong comes to Milton Keynes Theatre


Raising the bar with their dare-devil stunts, jaw-dropping feats and irresistible comedy genius, Mischief’s Magic Goes Wrong comes to Milton Keynes this October.

Created with magic legends Penn & Teller, Magic Goes Wrong is Mischief’s biggest and most daring comedy catastrophe to date.

It follows a hapless gang of magicians as they stage an evening of grand illusion to raise cash for charity. As the magic turns to mayhem, accidents spiral out of control and so does their fundraising target!

Magic Goes Wrong will be playing at Milton Keynes Theatre from Tuesday 19 to Saturday 23 October 2021.

Over five decades, legendary magicians Penn & Teller have been sawing the magic rulebook in half. Their shows combine bamboozling illusions with dark comedy and their magic often seems to go horribly wrong.

So when they announced in 2019 that they were teaming up with Mischief, it seemed like a perfect match.

A few years ago they were performing in London, and Penn’s family decided they wanted to see a show in the West End. Penn said:

“I don’t go to comedy theatre at all, but my wife and children picked The Play That Goes Wrong. I realised that not only was my family laughing harder than I’ve ever seen them, but I was too.”

He immediately told Teller to book a ticket, and a few months later they were plotting a brand-new show with Mischief.

Mischief’s other West End successes include The Play That Goes Wrong, Peter Pan Goes Wrong, The Comedy About A Bank Robbery, Groan Ups and Mischief Movie Night.

Their hugely successful six-part TV Series, The Goes Wrong Show, aired in the UK on BBC ONE and on Amazon Prime Video in the US, Canada and Australia.
