See The Play That Goes Wrong at the Duchess Theatre
Hailed as one of the funniest shows of all time, the award-winning production of The Play That Goes Wrong is one of the hottest shows to see. From the creators of The Lion and The Wardrobe, Cat and James and the Peach, the latest show from Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society features a 1920s murder mystery that - as the name suggests - goes horribly wrong.
It’s a play within a play, where audiences are treated to all the possible things that could go wrong with a show. From a runaway dog to a broken set, and cast members forgetting lines to even getting drunk on stage, The Play That Goes Wrong is full of hilarious mishaps and disasters. Think Monty Python meets Sherlock Holmes.
First opening in 2012, the production has toured the US, Australia and the UK, with successful runs on and off Broadway and at the Duchess Theatre in the renowned West End district of London. It has also delighted celebrities such as Ant and Dec and Joanna Lumley. It has also received rave reviews as it reduces its spectators to cries of laughter from The New York Times, WhatsOnStage and The Telegraph as well as winning lots of awards including an Olivier for ‘Best New Comedy’.
Don’t miss the incredible The Play That Goes Wrong - just prepare to have sore ribs and cheeks afterwards!
