The magic show has been created with American magic duo Penn & Teller.

Stephen Fry called it “joyously silly and entirely wonderful”.

In Magic Goes Wrong a hapless gang of magicians are staging an evening of grand illusion to raise cash for charity.

But as the magic turns to mayhem, accidents spiral out of control and so does their fundraising target.

Magic Goes Wrong combines Mischief Theatre’s signature laugh-out-loud slapstick comedy with real magic and daredevil stunts.
