Casting news

A WEEK after opening on Broadway, The Play That Goes Wrong has announced that from Wednesday, May 10, 2017, there will be a new cast for the West End production, which is currently booking at the Duchess Theatre until February 25, 2018.

The new line up includes Jack Baldwin (as Chris), Leonard Cook (Robert), Katy Daghorn (Sandra), Fred Gray (Jonathan), George Haynes (Max), Daniel Poyser (Trevor), Lindsey Scott (Annie) and Sydney K Smith (Dennis).

The company is completed by Tom Babbage, Jamie Birkett, Sean Carey and Beth Lilly.

The Play That Goes Wrong’s phenomenal popularity looks set to continue as it is now playing in six out of seven continents of the world. Producer Kenny Wax says ‘we are avoiding Antarctica for fear of an icy reception’.

The production is currently playing all over Europe including London, Paris and Budapest, in North America on Broadway, in Argentina, Japan, South Africa and Australia.

Mischief Theatre founder and writer Henry Lewis said: “We are simply baffled by the success of the show in the West End and all over the world. We cannot understand why audiences are finding our little murder mystery so funny. They don’t seem to be taking the play seriously at all.”

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

The Play That Goes Wrong is produced in the West End by Kenny Wax Ltd and Stage Presence Ltd.
