Following a 21-date national tour around the UK and huge popularity at Trafalgar Studios last year, Mischief Theatre's Olivier-winning comedy lands in the Duchess Theatre due to huge demand. After benefiting from a large and sudden inheritance, the inept and accident prone Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society attempt to put on a 1920s murder mystery play in the West End. But as the hopeless amateurs discover to their horror, everything that could go pear-shaped, does, with hilarious consequences....

The Duchess Theatre is one of the smallest and newest West End theatres and is located near Aldwych. It opened in 1929 and was designed by architect Ewen Barr. It is a Grade II Listed Building. In 2005, the Duchess Theatre was bought by Nica Burns and Max Weitzenhoffer, along with the Apollo, Lyric and Garrick Theatres, which became the Nimax Theatres.
