Watch new Mischief comedy Good Luck, Studio in rehearsals ahead of upcoming tour
We chat with playwright Henry Shields and director Henry Lewis about the latest Mischief production
We recently paid a visit to the Mischief crew during rehearsals for their next theatrical venture.
The comedic company has teamed up with Mercury Theatre and Wiltshire Creative for Good Luck, Studio, penned by Henry Shields and helmed by Mischief's artistic director Henry Lewis, and we had the opportunity to sit down with both Henrys to find out more about the upcoming production.
Good Luck, Studio, described as "a little bit darker and a little more grown-up" by the pair, takes place during the final night of recording for a massively over-budget and underwritten kid's TV show called Wibble the Dragon.
The company includes Mischief regulars Bryony Corrigan (as Saoirse), Harry Kershaw (as Sean), Chris Leask (as Toby) and Greg Tannahill (as Kevin), alongside Adam Byron (as Anthony), Eboni Dixon (as Pam), Jemma Geanaus (as Elizabeth), Gareth Tempest (as David Cooper-Brown), Sophia Lorenti (as Michaela) and Tom Walker (as Andy).
The production features designs by Sara Perks, lighting by David Howe, sound by Alexandra Faye Braithwaite, composition by Richard Baker, fight direction by Greg Tannahill and casting by Jenkins McShane Casting.
Good Luck, Studio opens on 5 October (following previews from 30 September) at the Mercury Theatre in Colchester and runs until 15 October, before transferring to Salisbury Playhouse in Wiltshire (18 October to 5 November) and the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in Guildford (8 to 12 November).
