The legend that is Rory Bremner stars as Chris Tarrant, with national treasure Mark Benton and talents of the next generation of stage and screen stars, Lewis Reeves and Charley Webb in Quiz, the thrilling and entertaining ride through the infamous Coughing Major scandal which engulfed the world’s most popular TV quiz show.

The story remains a mystery and had over six million people glued to their screens watching ITV’s adaptation of this West End smash hit play.

Now, uncovering new evidence, it’s time to ask YOU, the audience, to put fingers on keypads and answer the ultimate 50/50: guilty or not guilty? The show taps into the true magic of theatre that no other medium – not Netflix, not cinema – has: it’s liveness. The theatre audience transforms into both the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire studio audience one second, and a jury in court the next, voting on whether or not Charles and Diana Ingram are innocent or guilty.

We stay fascinated, night after night, on the results of the ‘jury’ once we laid out the case against the Ingrams, and – for the first time, really, in public – their defence. And the results very often really shocked people. This story isn’t as simple as people remember.

Quiz is by James Graham and is directed by Daniel Evans and Seán Linnen.

Coming this month, do you have the ‘Fastest finger first’ to book?

Performances daily from 24th to 28th October 2023, with matinee performances on Wednesday 24th and Saturday 28th October at 2pm
