Following its hugely successful world premiere at the Chichester Festival Theatre in 2017, and subsequent West End transfer in 2018, James Graham’s critically acclaimed smash hit comedy, Quiz, will now embark on a 20-week UK and Ireland tour from 24 August to 21 November 2020.
In September 2001, the nation was gripped by a scandal that remains, to this day, a mystery. Charles Ingram, aka the Coughing Major, and his accomplices duped the world’s richest and most popular TV quiz show – Who Wants to Be a Millionaire – out of £1,000,000. Or did they? And if they did cheat, how did they really do it?
Uncovering new evidence, and using bespoke technology never seen before on a UK tour, Quiz asks the audience to decide the ultimate 50-50: guilty or not guilty.
The production is directed by Artistic Director of Chichester Festival Theatre, Daniel Evans with Sean Linnen, designs by Robert Jones, lighting by Tim Lutkin, music and sound by Ben and Max Ringham, video design by Tim Reid, and original movement direction by Naomi Said. The tour is produced by William Village and Adam Spiegel.
Casting will be announced in due course.
