The production opens on 5 October at the Mercury Theatre, Colchester, with previews from 30 September, before transferring to Salisbury Playhouse from 18 October – 5 November.
Henry Shields, writer, says: “I am thrilled, delighted, excited and utterly terrified to be presenting my first solo work Good Luck, Studio at the Mercury Theatre Colchester and Salisbury Playhouse. With the help of the Mischief team, we will be creating a show that is extremely funny, totally original, and not at all suitable for children.”
Henry Lewis, director, says: “I am absolutely thrilled to making my directorial debut with this hilarious new play”.

It’s the final night of recording Wibble the Dragon. The show is massively over budget and under written. With one hour left to film, 16 pages to go, and an audience of screaming children getting more and more impatient, the cast and crew know big cuddly heads are going to roll.
The last thing anyone needs is a failed actor showing up with a sinister vendetta and his own dragon costume. In this kid’s TV show, more than just careers will die.
Good Luck, Studio is a new dark comedy from the award-winning Mischief, written by Henry Shields and directed by Henry Lewis and with access performances available across both venues.
