The Play That Goes Wrong

Wrong never felt so right

What happens when you combine a classic whodunit murder mystery with a comic farce? The answer is Mischief Theatre’s catastrophic, Olivier Award-winning comedy The Play That Goes Wrong, which is leaving audiences aching with laughter at the Duchess Theatre.

The hapless Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society is staging its latest production, The Murder at Haversham Manor – a classic murder mystery tale akin to Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap. However, in the hands of these accident-prone actors, everything that can go wrong does! The cast battle through countless disasters, from faulty sets to fluffed lines, in a desperate bid to bring the play to its thrilling conclusion, with hilarious results.

Mischief Theatre have taken the West End by storm, mounting several award-winning plays, including The Comedy About a Bank Robbery at the Criterion Theatre, Mischief Movie Night and Magic Goes Wrong at the Vaudeville Theatre.

Having taken the West End by storm since 2014, this play has gone on to become a global phenomenon, with productions playing on Broadway and around the globe. The Play That Goes Wrong tickets are perfect for a slice of escapist comedy and guaranteed to leave you giggling all the way home.
