The Olivier and Tony award-winning The Play That Goes Wrong celebrates its fourth birthday on the West End today. To mark the occasion the production has announced that they will be extending their run at the Duchess Theatre through to October 2019!
What is The Play That Goes Wrong about?
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 thesps discover to their horror, everything that could go pear-shaped, does, with hilarious consequences. Corpses that can't lie still, props which disappear and reappear at the wrong time and a set that is literally falling apart will all ring true to any amateur performers out there (although hopefully, not quite to this degree). Couple all this with a Butler whose talent for garbling simple phrases is rivalled only by Fawlty Towers' Manuel and you have a production which probably won't be up for any Olivier Awards anytime soon...
