Synopsis

 

The Coughing Major Millionaire Scandal
Quiz
The Chichester Festival Theatre Production

A new comedy by James Graham
Directed by Daniel Evans and Sean Linnen

In September 2001, the nation was gripped by a scandal that remains, to this day, a mystery.

Charles Ingram, aka the Coughing Major, and his accomplices duped the world’s richest and most popular TV quiz show - Who Wants to Be a Millionaire - out of £1,000,000.

Or did they? And if they did cheat, how did they really do it?

Following ITV's new three-part series, this critically acclaimed West End smash hit comedy uncovers new evidence and asks you, the audience, to decide: guilty or not guilty.

 

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.
