Casting news

A NEW second cast has been announced for the Olivier Award-winning The Play That Goes Wrong, which is currently booking at the Duchess Theatre until February 14, 2016. The changes take place on August 18, 2015.

The new line up includes Leonard Cook (as Robert), Bryony Corrigan (Sandra), Harry Kershaw (Chris), Laura Kirman (Annie), Chris Leask (Trevor), James Marlowe (Max), Laurence Pears (Jonathan) and Niall Ransome (Dennis).

The company is completed by Adam Byron, Matt Cavendish, April Hughes and Sarah Madigan.

Co-written by Mischief Theatre company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, and directed by Mark Bell, The Play That Goes Wrong is a highly physical comedy packed with finely-tuned farce and Buster Keaton inspired slapstick delivered with split-second timing.

The play introduces ‘The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society’ who are attempting to put on a 1920’s 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.

On July 6, August 3 and September 7, 2015, the cast of the The Play That Goes Wrong show off their award-winning improvisation skills which have wowed Edinburgh Festival audiences for the past five years, with three nights at the Duchess Theatre in Lights! Camera! Improvise!
