Mischief Theatre Company raises the bar again with Groan Ups
Groan Ups, the latest comedy theatre piece by Mischief Theatre Company, is taking London audiences by storm! Having opened last month for previews on 20 September, the show is now in full swing as the production team release the long-awaited first-look photos that fans have been dying to see for weeks and boy, are they gorgeous!
The play employs what's known as forced perspective, a technique in which stage props and designs are made to appear larger than they actually are in order to create an optical illusion that the actors are smaller. Think Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings series, but for the stage, as the beloved adult characters in Groan Ups appear almost child-like in their own flashbacks.
The release of photos comes as Groan Ups prepares to hold its official press night this week at the Vaudeville on Thursday, 10 October 2019.

The Groan Ups West End cast stars Bryony Corrigan as Chemise/Miss Murray, Charlie Russell as Katie, Dave Hearn as Paul, Henry Lewis as Spencer, Henry Shields as Archie, Jonathan Sayer as Simon, and Nancy Zamit as Moon.
