THE MAJOR COUGHING MILLIONAIRE SCANDAL
Following a sold out run at Chichester Festival Theatre, Quiz – the sensational new comedy from ‘this country’s political playwright par excellence’ (Evening Standard), James Graham (This House, Ink, Labour of Love) – transfers to the West End for a limited 12-week run at the Noël Coward Theatre.
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 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.
***** An extremely fun evening
****James Graham is the playwright who can do no wrong
**** One thing’s for sure, though — Quiz is a winner
**** With its mix of populism, personal tragedy, politics, and even a pub quiz, this is sure to be another hit for a playwright on a roll
