We’re so grateful to everyone from multi award-winning comedy troupe Mischief and the London company of The Play That Goes Wrong for their support during ‘Mischief May’.

During the month of May, the team, cast and crew all put in a huge amount of effort to raise vital funds and awareness for Spread a Smile, raising over £6,400 through bucket collections and online donations to help spread smiles to seriously ill children and young people across the UK.

It’s been a fantastic month which saw some brilliantly creative initiatives and support for the charity, including a behind the scenes half-term online workshop especially for our families. During the workshop, guests had the opportunity to discover how the chaos and total mayhem of the play is created and meet the cast, creative and stage management teams during a live Q&A.

Play That Goes WrongAs a very special treat, Mischief also invited some of the families supported by Spread a Smile to see The Play That Goes Wrong at the Duchess Theatre, London, including a meet and greet with the cast and crew. Outings such as this are extremely important, providing a chance to escape from the worries and restrictions of serious illness, even if just for a short while.

Earlier this month, Spread a Smile Co-Founder and Trustee, Josephine Segal was invited on stage to accept their donation on behalf of all of the families we support saying,

“It’s been wonderful to see such generous support from everyone at Mischief and The Play That Goes Wrong. We are honoured and grateful to have worked with their incredible teams and can’t thank them enough for everything they have done during Mischief May. It has meant a huge amount to us and all of the families who have been touched by their creativity and commitment to our work.” Josephine Segal, Co-Founder and Trustee, Spread a Smile

Thank you to everyone at Mischief, the Play That Goes Wrong and the Duchess Theatre for their support. We’ve loved your spirit, positivity, and every moment of Mischief May!
