The Play That Goes Wrong
The Play That Goes Wrong is a slapstick farce following the fictitious Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society as they attempt to stage a perfect 1920's murder mystery. However, as the show goes on, things do not go quite to plan! Expect cast disputes, accidents, a set with a mind of its own, costume malfunctions and many many more disasters that result in audience hysterics! As they say in the business, "the show must go on"... But just how much can the disastrous Cornley Drama Society survive before the curtain call?
Described as “Fawlty Towers meets Noises Off”, The Play That Goes Wrong was devised by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, who also starred in the production when it first opened, alongside Greg Tannahill, Charlie Russell, Dave Hearn, Nancy Wallinger and Rob Falconer. Now, The Play That Goes Wrong stars Drew Dillon as Dennis, Adam Byron as Robert, April Hughes as Sandra, Fred Gray as Trevor, Hayden Wood as Chris, Joanne Ferguson as Annie, Daniel Millar as Max and Olivier Llewellyn-Jenkins as Jonathan as the unlucky Thespian troupe!
Directed by Mark Bell and designed by Nigel Hook, The Play That Goes Wrong is a tremendous success that leaves audiences in stitches. Be sure to catch the comedy, which continues at the Duchess Theatre London.
