Absolutely Fantastic. Second time of seeing it was even funnier than the first. Having been involved in am dram and school productions all my life, everything strikes a chord. The slapstick is amazing and the timing perfect. A truly magnificent cast that work so hard to present a couple of hours of pure hilarity without recourse to smut or innuendo. Superb!

Brilliant fast moving comedy with laughs from 15 minutes before the “start”. Twists and turns, action packed laughs with actors, lines, props and circumstances. Truly amazing production.

Very enjoyable and fun to watch. Slapstick but pulled off by some clever acting. Would even like to see it again as sure some ad libing went on so the next performance would be slightly different. A good night out.

Have not laughed so much in the space of 2 hours for a long time. Still laughing now. Seats had plenty of leg room and very comfy. Ice cream served in the auditorium like back in the day. Staff very friendly. A must see !!

Absolutely brilliant! 5 star performances. Never laughed so much for so long (in years).

If you can get a chance to see this, please go!

Avoid Avoid Avoid. Puerile. Even school children won't find funny. Producer thought if you bang things a lot and pretend you forget your lines it will be very hillarious. It is not. Poor performers have to shout the lines to make them sound funny.

My best friend of 50-plus years and I recently saw The Play That Goes Wrong during our two-weeks' holiday in England and Wales in celebration of our 65th birthdays. We laughed so hard we gasped for breath. The play is brilliant...a play within a play...performed by a cast of highly intelligent, talented young people. For many years, I was the drama coach at our local high school and know all too well the many things that can and do go wrong during a production. This play takes everything, mixes it up, and delivers a brilliant piece of work! We loved it!
