The Play That Goes Wrong Theater Show in London

    What to Expect
    Prepare to leave the auditorium aching with laughter as the ‘genuinely hilarious’ Play the Goes Wrong continues to entertain at the Duchess Theatre in London.
    Described as being somewhere between Noises Off and Fawlty Towers, the play sees the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society fall into their second calamitous year on the stage, as they prepare for the staging of a 1920s murder mystery. The theatre group battles through the bloopers in a play that anything which could go wrong does go wrong.
    The Mischief Theatre Company’s production is written and performed by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Burke and Henry Shields. During its sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival and two successful runs on the West End, the smash comedy has been awarded with a string of five-star reviews and was crowned winner of the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy.
    The show runs for two hours five minutes, including a 20 minute interval. This side-splitting comedy is fabulous family entertainment, suitable for ages eight and upwards.

    Good old fashioned British farce. My husband and myself thoroughly enjoyed this bit of slapstick made all the more enjoyable for me as my husband was elected to "help" hold the mantle piece and sweep the floor! We loved the show and the cast were...More

    Good clean fun. Haven't laughed so much for ages. Yes quite a lot of it is slapstick, and on occasion it does get a bit out of hand, but expertly done and looking forward to seeing the forthcoming shows from this company later in the...More

    We enjoyed very much the show, worth every penny. Typical English humour. It's a piss take so be prepared for that.
