James Graham's Quiz West End transfer to have onstage seating

The show opened in Chichester last year

Onstage seating will be available for the West End transfer of James Graham's Quiz, which opens at the Noël Coward Theatre in April.

A limited number of seats will be available for audiences to sit alongside the cast, with the stage seat prices beginning at £15.

Directed by Chichester Festival Theatre AD Daniel Evans, the play stars Gavin Spokes as Charles Ingram, also known as 'the coughing Major' when he hit headlines for cheating on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?. He is joined by Stephanie Street as wife Diana Ingram and Keir Charles as host Chris Tarrant.

The Ingrams were convicted of "procuring the execution of a valuable security by deception" in 2003, two years after Charles won £1,000,000 on the programme.

It was also announced Sharon Ballard (Good Omens) will join the cast for its West End run.

In her five-star review for WhatsOnStage, Sarah Crompton called Quiz a 'cracking play that sheds vivid light on the state of the nation while telling an engrossing story.'

Quiz marks Graham's third show in the West End in the last year, with Labour of Love and Ink having both run in London in 2017. You can watch him take our 'quiz of quizzes' below.

Quiz will run at the Noël Coward Theatre from 10 April to 16 June, with previews from 31 March.
