About The Play That Goes Wrong

The show that goes wrong is doing something right, making London audiences laugh since 2014. Book tickets to The Play That Goes Wrong on Box Office.

Mischief Theatre Company, which created the show, is now globally famous and has multiple successful shows to its name. See the play that started it all. The Play That Goes Wrong was an instant smash in the West End, where it won the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, and in New York, where it has run since 2017.

Forgetful actors, broken sets, and missing props would normally spell a show’s closing, but at The Play That Goes Wrong, every mishap is part of the laughs. An amateur theatre troupe must weather all this and more just to make it through opening night of their new murder mystery play.

London Theatre hails the play as “divinely daft, gloriously preposterous and utterly silly.” It’s impossible to go wrong with a night out at The Play That Goes Wrong — book tickets on Box Office now.
