The Play That Goes Wrong celebrates its fourth birthday with booking extension

The Play That Goes Wrong

THE Play That Goes Wrong, the Olivier Award-winning box office hit, celebrates its fourth birthday today (September 12, 2018) by announcing a new booking period at the Duchess Theatre with tickets going on sale until October 27, 2019.

Awarded the 2014 Best New Comedy, the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy and a Tony Award for the Broadway transfer, The Play That Goes Wrong continues to delight audiences in the West End.

The remarkable rags-to-riches story shows no signs of slowing down for a play which started its life at a London fringe venue with only four paying customers at the first performance. Since then, it has played to an audience of over two million. This Autumn The Play That Goes Wrong will be playing simultaneously in twelve countries and will also open in Moscow on October 6.

The West End cast includes Katie Bernstein (as Annie), Jason Callender (Jonathan), Edward Judge (Robert), Alastair Kirton (Max), Edward Howells (Dennis), Meg Mortell (Sandra), Graeme Rooney (Trevor) and Patrick Warner (Chris).

The company is completed by Natasha Culley, Matthew Howell, Helana Muir and James Watterson.

The play introduces The ‘Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society’ who are attempting to put on a 1920s’ murder mystery, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong, does, as the accident prone thespians battle on against all the odds to get to their final curtain call.

The Play That Goes Wrong is co-written by Mischief Theatre company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields and is directed by Mark Bell, with set designs by Nigel Hook, lighting by Ric Mountjoy, sound design by Andy Johnson and costumes by Roberto Surace. It is produced in the West End by Kenny Wax Ltd and Stage Presence Ltd. The Associate Director is Sean Turner and Resident Director is Hannah Sharkey.

The Play That Goes Wrong is currently enjoying its third UK tour, performing at 37 venues nation-wide until October 6, 2018. The 2018-19 US Tour of The Play That Goes Wrong opens in September 2018 and runs for 42 weeks. The Broadway production is running at the Lyceum Theatre in New York, where it is currently booking until January 6, 2019.
