Loved The Play that Gies Wrong very funny and brilliant acting. However we were in the circle and the smell of old carpets and dust made me sneeze all evening. Especially bad on the stairs to the ladies toilets. Probably needs a good vacuum at...More

We booked tickets to go see ‘The play that goes wrong’. First we bumped into someone from our theatre at home working front of house. We were shown to our seats (K1 & 2) better leg room than other theatres, with only a slightly restricted...More

First, the show The Play that goes Wrong was hysterical and so very well done. You have to be in the mood for silliness, though, so grumpy people need not attend. Leg room is always a concern for me because my husband is tall. He...More

Really funny play! Myself and partner laughed from the start to the end. If anything though it’s a shame there is an interval as I felt it ruined the flow and maybe due to this, the second half felt a little bit more stale.

Just seen The Play that Goes Wrong. This is the funniest production ever! The cast work incredibly hard and we laughed from beginning to end! The Duchess is a lovely old theatre, not too big, perfect for this show. I am so pleased we went!

There is a searchline outside the theatre before the show, which can cause a hold-up, so arrive early.
