The Play That Goes Wrong is an absolutely hilarious show written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields of Mischief Theatre Company. The same team of Mischief Theatre Company has also written comedy play Peter Pan Goes wrong with the same super talented cast of The play That Goes Wrong.
What is The play That goes Wrong about?
As the name suggests nothing is right about The play That Goes Wrong but in a gleeful manner. The comedy show thoroughly entertains the spectators when the Cornley Polytechnic Drama society aims to put on their annual show and amidst rehearsals for “Murder at Haversham Manor”, a 1920s murder mystery. The play within the play turns out to be a herculean task and a battle against all odds. See the accident-prone thespians endeavour to make it through to their final curtain call, with amusing consequences.
Success Story Of The Play That Goes Wrong
The artists performing in this joyful comedy include Henry Shields as Chris, Dave Hearn as Max, Rob Falconer as Trevor, Henry Lewis as Robert, Charlie Russell as Sandra, Jonathan Sayer as Dennis, Grag Tannahill as Jonathan and Nancy Zamit as Annie. The director of the play is Mark Bell, costumes are by Roberto Surace and set designing is by Nigel Hook.
Consistently funny - appreciate the amount of rehearsal that must have gone into getting it so wrong!
