Quiz The Play – transfers to the Noel Coward Theatre after sell-out run at Chichester Festival Theatre. A new play by John Graham. Video includes soundbites with guests invited to opening night in the West End.
Britain is obsessed with quiz shows; watching them, being selected for them, winning them. Quiz is a sharply funny new play that puts quiz shows in the spotlight. It reexamines the 2001 events of the Charles Ingram Who Wants To Be A Millionaire cheating scandal and subsequent trial.
It is not in any way connected with the makers of the programme or any of the individuals portrayed.
A provocative re-examination of the case against Charles Ingram, the ‘coughing Major’. Accused of cheating on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? The incident led to headlines across the nation. As far as the British public is concerned no-one cheats on a quiz show!
Quiz ‘highlights the dangerous blending of entertainment, politics and justice today.’ (Sunday Times). From 31 March – 16 June 2018.
Noël Coward Theatre, 85-88 St Martin’s Ln, London WC2N 4AP
Tickets T: 0844 482 5140
