The coughing major millionaire scandal.

A new comedy by James Graham
Directed by Daniel Evans with 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.

Contains strong language and flashing lights.
