The Chichester Festival Theatre production of James Graham's Quiz will transfer to London's West End this spring.
The new work from Graham, currently represented in the West End by Labour of Love and Ink, will begin previews at the Noël Coward Theatre March 31, 2018, prior to an official opening April 10. Directed by Chichester Artistic Director Daniel Evans, the limited run is scheduled through June 16.
Quiz is a fictional account based on real events that took place in 2001 following an episode of the U.K. version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, when Charles Ingram was convicted for cheating on the game show.
Casting for the transfer will be announced at a later date.
In a statement, Graham commented, “Being given the chance to share Quiz with more people—and with the opportunity to develop and push our game show-meets-theatre concept even further—is beyond exciting for all of us. I would never have imagined years ago I'd get a chance to put any of my new plays into the West End.”
Quiz also features design by Robert Jones, lighting design by Tim Lutkin, music and sound by Ben and Max Ringham, video design by Tim Reid, movement direction by Naomi Said, and casting by Charlotte Sutton CDG. The London engagement is presented by William Village, Playful Productions and Chichester Festival Theatre.
