THE Play That Goes Wrong, the Olivier Award-winning box office hit, now in its third catastrophic year in the West End (Duchess Theatre), has announced a new booking period with tickets going on sale until February 25, 2018.

The Play That Goes Wrong’s phenomenal popularity looks set to continue this year as one bunch of would-be thespians fly across the pond to try their luck on Broadway (Read more) and another cast have just opened the show in Melbourne at the start of a sixteen-week Australian tour.

Mischief Theatre founder and writer Henry Lewis said:

“We are baffled that audiences continue to visit the ever failing Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society at the Duchess Theatre in the West End. We really hoped to cut costs this year with only one set of terrible actors having to perform. Regrettably this year will see the Broadway, West End, Australian and UK tour casts all forget their lines, miss their cues and have on-stage arguments.”

The Play That Goes Wrong is directed by Mark Bell, with set designs by Nigel Hook, lighting by Ric Mountjoy, sound by Andy Johnson and costumes by Roberto Surace and is performed by Adam Byron, Drew Dillon, Joanne Ferguson, Fred Gray, April Hughes, Oliver Llewellyn-Jenkins, Daniel Millar and Hayden Wood.

The company is completed by Adam Boakes, Katy Daghorn, George Haynes and Lindsey Scott.

The Play That Goes Wrong is suitable for ages 8+.
