The Play That Goes Wrong - Duchess Theatre

It can sometimes feel as though the Mischief Theatre is taking over the West End, at least when it comes to comedy, with Peter Pan Goes Wrong winning praise during Christmas and The Comedy About A Bank Robbery pulling in the crowds (it recently extended to April 2018).

This continues this week as The Play That Goes Wrong enters the spotlight yet again, with audiences around the world getting to experience the production in global cities, and the West End version announcing the latest cast change.

Jack Baldwin takes on the role of Chris from May 2017 alongside Katy Daghorn as Sandra, Fred Grey as Jonathan, Leonard Cook as Robert, George Haynes as Max, Sydney K Smith as Dennis, Lindsey Scott as Annie and Daniel Poyser as Trevor. If you want to see what they all look like, the show’s twitter feed has posted photos of those cast members, which you can find by scrolling down at twitter.com/playgoeswrong.

As for their previous credits, Jack Baldwin has portrayed Basil Faulty in the touring production The Faulty Towers Dining Experience, with other credits such as What The Butler Saw at the Curve, Leicester, Hamlet at the Park Theatre, North London and Twelfth Night at the Cockpit, London. Onscreen his work has included the film The Rochdale Pioneers.

For The Play That Goes Wrong he takes on the role of Chris Brean, the director of the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society. The show follows the fictional theatre company’s attempts to stage a murder mystery play as everything falls apart. Scenery falls down, actors forget their lines and stage hands find themselves under the lights as well. It opened at the Duchess Theatre in September 2014 following a previous appearance at the Trafalgar Studios in 2013.

This run is set to continue for some time to come with The Play That Goes Wrong currently booking at the Duchess Theatre for performances up to Sunday 15th February 2018. Meanwhile, the new cast members begin performances from Wednesday 10th May 2017.
