The Story

When the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society attempt to stage a 1920s murder mystery play, nothing goes right; prop doors don’t open, sets come crashing down and tempers flare in this brilliantly-observed farce. The winner of this year’s Whatsonstage award for Best Comedy, The Play That Goes Wrong has been lauded by critics and audiences alike.

History of The Play That Goes Wrong

The Play That Goes Wrong, a farcical comedy that has enjoyed vast success, first as a hit Fringe show and most recently on an acclaimed tour around the country, is now enjoying its fourth year in London's West End. Described as a comical hybrid The Mousetrap and Monty Python, this production has proved an astoundingly popular show, with hysterical performances and superb timing.
