Epic, Great staging, Hilarious, Entertaining, Clever

See it if Amazingly clever writing, timing and acting, slapstick humour, jokes within jokes. Children who grow into adults but don't seem to "grow up"

Don't see it if You don't like slapstick humour this isn't for you.

London Theatre
October 11th, 2019

Mischief may well be swerving into becoming natural successors to Alan Ayckbourn, at one time a stalwart brand of West End comedy, but structurally the tone isn't, as yet, as confident, deft or outright funny.

[Mischief Theatre are] genuinely heartening success story with an impressive work ethic and it’s a real shame that their new play ‘Groan Ups’ is fairly dreadful.

As it is, I winced a fair amount to start with and, after the interval, smiled throughout while even feeling the odd lump in the throat – which is some way from the Mischief Theatre norm.

I’d love to say that it’s another smash...Yet it’s a baggy old evening, not quite a full-on gagfest, but too broad to sustain its aspirations to be something more substantial.

The Stage (UK)

There are big laughs and plenty of them, but they sit uneasily with the straighter strain of the story. It’s not quite a case of Mischief Theatre Goes Wrong, but it’s not one of the company’s best either.

What's On Stage (UK)
October 11th, 2019

By challenging themselves, pulling back (slightly) on the gags and injecting a sense of genuine pathos into their work, the creative team have really proven themselves top of the class. Four gold stars.
