Award winning comedy The Play That Goes Wrong will reopen at the Duchess Theatre in the West End of London this November.
The Tony and Olivier award winning play is among the first of West End shows to resume performances following the closure of all UK theatres in March 2020.
Mischief Theatre are currently re-writing and re-staging sections of the laugh-out-loud comedy in order to comply with government guidelines.
The Play That Goes Wrong follows an amateur dramatic society as they stage their annual production. But as the title suggests, anything that can go wrong does, with the accident prone thespians battling on against the odds to get to their final curtain call.
Speaking about the play reopening, producers Kenny Wax and Stage Presence Ltd. said: “The Play That Goes Wrong has been a tonic for people’s spirits since first appearing seven years ago… Laughter has the power to bring people together across all divides, reduces tensions and produces joy. And we know how lacking all of those have been these challenging past six months.”
As well as reopening in the West End, The Play That Goes Wrong will play a Christmas season at Theatre Royal Bath.
The Play That Goes Wrong is now booking from 19 November until 2 May 2021 at the Duchess Theatre, London.
