WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?!
The Cornley Drama Society are putting on a 1920s murder mystery, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong... does!
The accident-prone thespians battle against all odds to make it through to their final curtain call, with hilarious consequences!
The Play That Goes Wrong premiered at the Old Red Lion Theatre in London in 2012 as a one act version, this then moved to Trafalgar Studios in 2013.
The play then began a UK tour, following its run at Trafalgar Studios, from January 2014 at the Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury, visiting 17 venues and ending in Darlington in July, prior to being given a West End Venue.
The play then opened at the Duchess Theatre in the West End on 14 September 2014, where it remains and is currently booking until May 2021.
Directed by Mark Bell, the original West End cast included Henry Shields as Chris, Dave Hearn as Max, Rob Falconer as Trevor, Henry Lewis as Robert, Charlie Russell as Sandra, Jonathan Sayer as Dennis, Greg Tannahill as Jonathan, and Nancy Zamit as Annie. Set by Nigel Hook and costumes by Roberto Surace.
The original cast then opened the play on Broadway in 2017 at the Lyceum Theatre with JJ Abrams making his debut as a theatrical producer and becoming the longest running play on Broadway at the time with 745 regular performances and 27 previews.
Now stumbling through its seventh catastrophic year in London's West End and having performed in over 35 countries across 6 continents, winning multiple awards around the world including the WhatsOnStage and Olivier Award for Best New Comedy plus a Tony and Drama Desk Award for Best Scenic Design of a Play, The Play That Goes Wrong is a global phenomenon, which is guaranteed to leave you aching with laughter!
