Quiz

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.

  • Entertaining night out

    18 June 2018

    Very funny and informative about television quiz shows generally and the Who wants to be a Millionaire scandal in particular. Just enough audience participation to be fun but not uncomfortable. Wonderful performances. Shame it finished Saturday 16th

  • Brilliant and clever

    16 June 2018

    I booked for this at the last minute as a tourist not knowing much about the play (or the scandal to be honest). The writing was clever, the production brilliant and the overall theatre experience top notch.

  • a fun-filled anatomy of how hooked people can get on TV game-shows when the prize is right... even if you’re sitting up in the dress-circle you feel included, goaded, teased.'

    The Telegraph

  • 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'

    The Independent

  • James Graham’s portrayal of the ‘coughing major’ scandal is a whirling, neon wonder that makes for utterly compulsive viewing'
