why watch the play that goes wrong

Winner of the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, The Play That Goes Wrong is one of this year’s theater must-sees! Celebrating the best and worst of theater, the show is slapstick comedy at its best. Written by Olivier Award winners Jonathan Sayer, Henry Lewis, and Henry Shields, and co-produced by superstar J.J. Abrams and Kevin McCollum (Rent, Avenue Q, and Something Rotten!), alongside London producer Kenny Wax, witness this talented troupe’s masterpiece in action.

The Story

Set in the 1920s The Play That Goes Wrong follows the antics of the Cornley University Drama Society. While staging their production, ‘The murder at Haversham Manor’, things, err, don’t quite go as planned. A lead actor with a concussion, a corpse that can't play dead, actors slipping out of ‘character’, malfunctioning sets, and a complete disaster of misplaced drinks - it’s one mishap after the other. This behind-the-scenes comedy is brilliantly hilarious!

Critics Reviews

"Everything that can go wrong, it seems, does go wrong for this play, its players and particularly its wobbly, fragile set. But the more it does, of course, the funnier it becomes"
– London Theatre

"A highly physical and very silly comedy..."
– The Guardian
