A GUT BUSTING HIT
The New York Times
IT’S AS THOUGH THE MOUSETRAP HAS BEEN TAKEN OVER BY MONTY PYTHON
A MASTERPIECE OF MALFUNCTION
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 November 2023!
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. It is currently running Off-Broadway at the New World Stages.
Now stumbling through its ninth chaotic 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!
BUT WHAT MAKES IT THE WORLD’S BIGGEST HIT SHOW?
19 is the number of times actors get hit in each show, either by an object or each other.
There have been 6194 performances in the English language all around the World.
Which means someone has been struck 117,686 times.
Making this (officially) the biggest HIT play. (Ouch!)
