Play That Goes Wrong, The

The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society are putting on a 1920s murder mystery, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong… does! As the accident prone thesps battle on against all the odds to reach their final curtain call, hilarious results ensue! Read more …


Hailed “a gut-busting hit” by the New York Times, Mischief Theatre’s sell-out West End comedy which is now playing on Broadway, has won a host of celebrity endorsements from the likes of Joanna Lumley “We laughed until the tears ran down our faces, it has to be seen” to Ant & Dec “The funniest
show we’ve seen! If you can get a ticket, go!” 

The critical consensus

It really is impossible not to love what Mischief Theatre have created here. The Play That Goes Wrong is sure to entertain even the most discerning theatre goer, and whilst we may laugh at the joyous calamity that enfolds in front of us, it is without a doubt that there is a right way of doing things wrong.

This talented cast of performers are safe hands for Mischief Theatre’s most famous work. It’s rather meta yet a highly easy concept to grasp. Hard not to laugh and impossible not to appreciate the ability of making it all go wrong with ease.

****(*)Joe Gardner, The Wee Review, 27/02/2018

Mystery and malfunction, with impressive, choreographed set failures by Nigel Hook, complete with a motley crew of amateur theatrics makes for an evening that will make you sit up in your seat with the giggles.

****(*)Erin Roche, Edinburgh Guide, 13/03/2018

It’s not an intellectual piece, but it’s undoubtedly one of the cleverest shows you’ll see all year.

*****Tom Ralphs, The Reviews Hub, 14/03/2018

Deliriously silly and giddy, certainly one to set the Morningside aunts all a frothy. You will definitely never go to see a play like this again. Grief encounters of the gut-busting kind. Perilously recommended.
