Age Restriction: Suitable for ages 8+
The Duchess Theatre welcomes the Mischief Theatre to the West End from September as their show The Play That Goes Wrong enjoys long run over the Christmas period. The play itself follows the failed attempts of a drama society to put on a show at the annual Edinburgh Festival Fringe and already earned fans when it ran at the Old Red Lion Theatre and Trafalgar Studios 2 in 2013.
We meet the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society as they attempt to put on a 1920s style murder mystery play at the Scottish capital, but unfortunately the only things that they are good at are getting things wrong. So we have Chris, the head of the society, who has given himself the job of directing and also of playing the character of the inspector. Then there’s the duo cast as the play’s couple; there are obstacles in the way of them portraying romantic interest as one of them is genuinely doting. But it’s not just the cast that could bring it down; everything that can go wrong rears its ugly head throughout, leading to disaster after disaster.
It stars writers Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields alongside additional cast members Rob Falconer, Dave Hearn, Charlie Russell, Greg Tannahill and Nancy Wallinger. Meanwhile, Mark Bell directs.
In a year that brings shows like Bakersfield Mist, The Joe Wilkinson Experience and Tim Key: Single White Slut to the venue in what is shaping up to be a very busy year there, The Play That Goes Wrong runs at The Duchess Theatre from Sunday 14th September 2014 (previews from Friday 5th September 2014).
