International surprise hit The Play That Goes Wrong announces new West End cast.
Jack Baldwin will play Chris, Leonard Cook will play Robert, Katy Daghorn will play Sandra, Fred Gray will play Jonathan, George Haynes will play Max, Daniel Poyser will play Trevor, Lindsey Scott will play Annie and Sydney K Smith will play Dennis.
The company is completed by Tom Babbage, Jamie Birkett, Sean Carey and Beth Lilly.
Now firmly established at London’s Duchess Theatre and with touring productions in Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australia, it’s hard to believe that The Play That Goes Wrong started out playing a London fringe venue with only four paying members.
Mischief Theatre founder and writer Henry Lewis said, ‘We are simply baffled by the success of the show in the West End and all over the world. We cannot understand why audiences are finding our little murder mystery so funny. They don’t seem to be taking the play seriously at all’.
The new cast will take over the Duchess Theatre from 10 May 2017.
