WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE-Based QUIZ Play To Make Its Way To Television

According to Deadline, QUIZ, the stage play based on the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire cheating scandal, is set to make it's way to television with Left Bank Pictures.

The Crown producer is working with Graham - best known for political plays including This House and Ink, the story of a young Rupert Murdoch launching The Sun newspaper - to turn the play into a short TV drama. I hear Sony-backed Left Bank is looking to turn the play into a stand-alone drama, or a two-parter with Graham attached to adapt for the small screen.

James Graham's 'sparkling new play', Quiz, is now transferring to London's Noël Coward Theatre after a hit Chichester Festival Theatre run. Following the success of Ink and Labour of Love, Quiz completes a hat-trick of productions in the West End for Graham in less than a year. Book tickets here from £15!

Artistic Director of Chichester Festival Theatre, Daniel Evans, directs Keir Charles, Greg Haiste, Mark Meadows, Henry Pettigrew, Gavin Spokes, Stephanie Street, Jay Villiers, Lizzie Winkler and Sarah Woodward, who reprise their roles from the run at Chichester Festival Theatre. They are joined by Sharon Ballard.

A provocative re-examination of the case against Charles Ingram, the 'coughing Major', for cheating on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, Quiz 'highlights the dangerous blending of entertainment, politics and justice today' (Sunday Times). Quiz opens on 10 April 2018, with previews from 31 March, and runs for a strictly limited London season until 16 June.
