The Play That Goes Wrong Tour 2021 has now concluded.
Mischief Theatre’s disastrous decision to unleash the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society on the world has now impacted on 35 countries and after seven years of trying to get it right in London’s West End, The Play That Goes Wrong is still a nightly disaster.
WHAT IS THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG ABOUT?
The Cornley Drama Society are putting on a 1920s murder mystery, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong… does! The accident-prone thespians battle against all odds to make it through to their final curtain call, with hilarious consequences!
WHAT THE CRITICS SAID ABOUT THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG
“I feared I was going to hyperventilate”
“A joyous show builds to a delirious climax”
“A triumph of split-second timing”
“A gut-busting hit”
