Why go and see it?

“Last year was hilarious. We blew the roof off the Savoy theatre. This year we’re gonna take the walls out as well!” - Director Oliver Chris

The game of Consequences - drawing an image, turning over the page to hide it and passing it on - often ends in astonishing and eye-wateringly funny results.

Production shot

Now inspired by this “What will happen next?” children’s game, and for a one night only fundraising gala evening at the Savoy Theatre on Monday 15 May 2023, Oliver Chris (Trying, Motherland, The Office, One Man Two Guvnors) will direct a play-about-making-a-play where everything that can go wrong does.

Seven writers working in isolation will collaborate on one script. They will be briefed on the entire plot, the characters and what happens in their scene - but will not be able to read the scene before or after theirs!

Confirmed writers so far are:

Peter Fellows (Veep, Avenue 5, The Death of Stalin), 

Helen Kingston (Half Bad, The Flood),

David Mumeni (writer of I’m Not That Kind of Guy, Cem in the multi-BAFTA winning Channel 4 comedy series, Stath Lets Flats), 

Isaac Tomiczek (Time Out Runner Up, Playwright’s Prize 2022),

Manjinder Virk (Midsomer Murders, Out of Darkness, Glow),

with two more to be announced. 

The cast will be announced in the coming months. Previous actors for the Platform Presents Gala have included Bessie Carter, David Mumeni, Denise Gough, Dougray Scott, George Mackay, Genevieve O’Reilly, Indira Varma, Iwan Rheon, Jack Farthing, Jade Anouka, Juliet Stevenson, Lizzy Connolly, Nicholas Burns, Nicholas Pinnock, Oliver Chris, Pearl Mackie, Pippa Bennett-Warner, Robert Bathurst, Rosalie Craig, Ronni Ancona, Sally Phillips, Tobias Menzies, Tuppence Middleton, Tamzin Outhwaite, Tracy Ann Oberman.

This evening of comedy is the fifth annual fundraiser to raise money for the Ambassador Theatre Group Playwright’s Prize in association with Platform Presents, with five Runners-Up prizes supported by Time Out. It promises to be one of the best fun nights out in the West End

The Playwright’s Prize

The Playwright’s Prize was founded in 2018 by non-profit Platform Presents CIC to nurture and provide more opportunities for playwrights.  In the first year 176 scripts were submitted. Last year, in its fourth year, 1,174 scripts were submitted and Platform Presents partnered with one of the leading live entertainment companies in the world, Ambassador Theatre Group, on the prize re-naming it the Ambassador Theatre Group Playwright’s Prize in association with Platform Presents. Also in 2022 international city media brand Time Out partnered with Platform Presents and Finite Films to announce five new prizes for Runners-Up. Ambassador Theatre Group and Time Out are confirmed to partner again this year.

The annual prize and fundraiser is co-produced with Finite Films & TV, founded by Amy Gardner, and judged by a high profile group of industry experts. The winner receives £5,000 and mentoring to bring their play to stage and or screen. The five Runners-Up each receive £1,000.

Mark Cornell, CEO of Ambassador Theatre Group said: “Storytelling is our craft, visceral experiences is our area of expertise. This prize and the Theatrical Consequences Gala are the perfect vehicles to raise funds to support rising star talent.”

Opened in 1881, the Savoy Theatre in London was designed by C I Phipps and decorated by Collinson & Locke. The Savoy became famous as the first public building in the world to be lit by incandescent electric lights and in one way or another it has been blazing ever since.

The Savoy Theatre is rich with history, having hosted famed premiers such as Oscar Wilde’s Salome and Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit. It’s seen a range of performances from prestigious plays to star-studded musicals and now, it’s home to the beloved Pretty Woman: The Musical. To experience the beautiful Savoy Theatre for yourself, book your show tickets from the ATG online box office today.
