Rory Bremner stars in Quiz at New Theatre

Impressionist and comedian Rory Bremner stars as Chris Tarrant in the drama Quiz at the New Theatre next week (Wednesday 18 to Saturday 21 October).

The play by James Graham explores the real-life story of Charles Ingram, aka 'the Coughing Major', who conned the world’s most popular TV quiz show, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire out of £1,000,000. Or did he?

Nominated for two Olivier Awards including Best New Comedy, the play, Quiz, transferred to London’s West End in 2018, following a sold-out run at Chichester Festival Theatre.

And in 2020, millions tuned in to see the three-part ITV adaptation starring Michael Sheen, Matthew Macfadyen and Sian Clifford.

Quiz is now visiting Cardiff as part of a UK tour.

Rory Bremner said “I’m very excited about this; not just the challenge of playing Chris Tarrant in long form but bringing the scandal that really caught the public’s imagination to a live audience every night. What really happened? The jury’s out - and this time it’s you!"

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. The television programme Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? is produced by 2waytraffic.
