The smash-hit slapstick comedy The Play That Goes Wrong now heading into its 4th disastrous year at the Duchess Theatre.

Winner of the 2014 Whatsonstage award for Best New Comedy, The Play That Goes Wrong is the hilarious show about a hapless group of amateur thespians who attempt to stage a Murder Mystery evening – with disastrous results!

Using traditional farce and Buster Keaton inspired slapstick, the show has wowed audiences on London’s fringe and on a major UK tour, and is now set for an acclaimed residency at the Duchess Theatre in the West End.

Co-written by Mischief Theatre’s Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, and directed by Mark Bell, the show is produced by Top Hat The Musical producer Kenny Wax.

THE STORY

When the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society attempt to stage a Twenties murder mystery evening they have high hopes for a smash-hit… but smash is all they get as everything that can go wrong, does go wrong! But the accident prone thespians battle on against all the odds to get to their final curtain call.

THE CAST

A hugely talented cast includes Adam Byron as Robert, Drew Dillon as Dennis, Joanne Ferguson as Annie, Fred Gray as Trevor, April Hughes as Sandra, Oliver Llewellyn-Jenkins as Jonathan, Daniel Millar as Max and Hayden Wood as Chris. The company is completed by Adam Boakes, Katy Daghorn, George Haynes and Lindsey Scott.
