QUIZ Will Embark on UK and Ireland Tour

QUIZ Will Embark on UK and Ireland Tour

James Graham's critically acclaimed smash hit comedy, Quiz, will embark on a 20-week UK and Ireland tour from August 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.

Quiz returns to the stage following its highly successful world premiere at Chichester's Minerva Theatre in 2017 and subsequent West End transfer in 2018. 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.

Set to air in 2020, the Olivier Award winning writer, James Graham, has also adapted Quiz into a three-part drama for ITV. The TV series of the same name is directed by Stephen Frears and stars Michael Sheen, Matthew Macfadyen, Sian Clifford, Aisling Bea and Helen McCrory.

Quiz is a fictional imagination based on real events which took place in 2001 following an episode of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? It is not in any way connected with the makers of the programme or any of the individuals portrayed.
