Creators of all things clumsy, hilarious and utterly ridiculous, Mischief Theatre are taking to the stage once again in their delightfully silly production of The Play That Goes Wrong. Also known as the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society, this much-loved production company has brought us family favourites such as Magic Goes Wrong, The Comedy About A Bank Robbery and The Goes Wrong Show on BBC, and their next instalment is no less of a treat.
In this play within a play, the disastrous theatre group attempt a classic 1920s whodunnit as they try to solve the mysterious murder at Haversham Manor, but things quickly go from bad to worse. With everything from a collapsing mantelpiece, spotlights that shine on the wrong part of the stage, a murder victim who can’t play dead and actors who forget their lines or, worse still, get knocked unconscious, this West End comedy is a hysterical recipe for disaster. You’ll laugh out loud as the cast clumsily battle through to the final curtain call in the hope that the entire set won’t come crashing down around them!
Older fans of Monty Python and Fawlty Towers will love the slapstick humour that’s completely over the top, with brilliant jokes and perfect comic timing that make this one of the best new comedies in London. The Play That Goes Wrong is two hours of pure farce and an unforgettable treat for the whole family. Alternatively, if you're hoping for a less disastrous murder mystery, why not grab tickets to The Mousetrap instead.
