The Play That Goes WrongPresented by the award-winning, international comedy company Mischief Theatre, The Play That Goes Wrong follows the inept and accident prone Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society as they attempt to create an ambitious 1920's murder mystery (Murder at Haversham Manor) to The Edinburgh Festival. Disaster ensues and the cast fall apart under the pressure, can they turn things around before the final curtain falls? Praised for its script - "full of bright ideas and preposterous gags" - by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, and described as "an enduring cult hit in the making" by Daily Telegraph theatre critic Charles Spencer when it was staged at Trafalgar Studios in the summer of 2013, The Play That Goes Wrong transferred to London's Duchess Theatre on Friday 5th September 2014 and is clearly doing something very right.

 

About Duchess Theatre

The Duchess Theatre is one of the smallest in The West End, which is not entirely a bad thing. The seating is almost on top of the stage, creating an intense engagement between audience and actors of the kind usually reserved for the fringe. More about Duchess Theatre
