Old Red Lion Theatre and Mischief Theatre present:

The play That Goes Wrong

New comic writing from the producer of Mercury Fur finds the inept Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society staging a 1920’s murder mystery

Trafalgar Studios (T2), West End run extended until Saturday 1st June

Forgotten lines, inept actors and a set with its screws loose form the heart of this fast-paced, celebrated new comedy, which transfers to the West End direct from an acclaimed run at the Old Red Lion Theatre earlier this year.

Focusing on the many trials and tribulations of the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society, the play tells the story of the company’s staging of 1920’s murder mystery Murder at Haversham Manor. Chris the arrogant head of the drama society has directed the piece and cast himself as the dynamic Inspector, while desperate wannabe actress Sandra and the genuinely doting Max struggle opposite each other as the romantic interests and actor Dennis still can’t pronounce “façade”. An hour of delicately timed disaster ensues; actors get knocked out, the play gets stuck on a loop and the set starts to disintegrate.
