    What to Expect
    Prepare to leave the auditorium aching with laughter as the ‘genuinely hilarious’ Play the Goes Wrong continues to entertain at the Duchess Theatre in London.

    Described as being somewhere between Noises Off and Fawlty Towers, the play sees the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society fall into their second calamitous year on the stage, as they prepare for the staging of a 1920s murder mystery. The theatre group battles through the bloopers in a play that anything which could go wrong does go wrong.

    The Mischief Theatre Company’s production is written and performed by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Burke and Henry Shields. During its sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival and two successful runs on the West End, the smash comedy has been awarded with a string of five-star reviews and was crowned winner of the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy.

    The show runs for two hours five minutes, including a 20 minute interval. This side-splitting comedy is fabulous family entertainment, suitable for ages eight and upwards.

    We weren’t quite sure what to expect, but began laughing even before the play began. Hilarious! Just our sense of humor 😊

    So funny. Arrive 15 minutes before curtain up - or you won't understand the missing dog, Winston - nor the dodgy mantelshelf

    Great acting, great storyline and just a great night out. Suits people of all ages. Admission price was also very reasonable.

    I saw a snippet of this on the Royal Variety Show and loved it. When the opportunity arose to actually see it whilst in London I grabbed a ticket and never looked back. I laughed all the way through. Yes it is innocent and silly but it is so much fun. I would go again in a

    Good old fashioned British farce. My husband and myself thoroughly enjoyed this bit of slapstick made all the more enjoyable for me as my husband was elected to "help" hold the mantle piece and sweep the floor! We loved the show and the cast were superb.
