The Play That Goes Wrong is in London. The Play That Goes Wrong tickets are on sale now.

What the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society may lack in apparent skill and finesse, they more than make up for it in enthusiasm. Their past performances of iconic theatre shows include The Lion and The Wardrobe James and the Peach and the beloved musical, Cat. Their latest production is a murder mystery, Murder at Haversham Manor. It's set to be the society's shining moment; The Mousetrap, eat your heart out. If only they could make it through a show without the set burning down that is. The hapless cast struggle to remember where they're meant to be, props are misplaced or broken and lines are frequently forgotten. Basically, everything that could go wrong, does.

Delightfully disastrous, The Play That Goes Wrong is a hilarious Olivier Award-winning comedy that has had London audiences in stitches at the Duchess Theatre since 2014. Produced by Mischief Theatre, this hysterical show will have you wondering how a show where everything is so wrong could be so right!

What to watch for

  • When the cast appeared on the prestigious Royal Variety Performance in 2015, the company were in front of 4,500 audience members including Prince Harry. 8 million people watched at home - now that's a lot of people.
  • Mischief Theatre are also the brains behind acclaimed plays such as The Comedy about a Bank Robbery, Groan Ups and Magic Goes Wrong.
  • The only continent to not have seen a production of The Play That Goes Wrong is Antarctica.
  • The show has won 11 well-deserved awards, including a Tony, Olivier and Molière. Show-offs!
  • The 2017-18 cast played for 50 weeks and 1 day, which amounts to 379 performances. During that time, 430 sugar glass vases blown to bits, 145 fire extinguishers were used (thankfully, they were part of the play) and 31 charity collections from the show raised over £68,000.
