Audience Award 2016: Play That Goes Wrong

First Published 7 March 2016, Last Updated 11 March 2016

We love the story of Mischief Theatre’s The Play That Goes Wrong.

The theatre company met and formed at LAMDA, created The Play That Goes Wrong and secured a run at one of London’s best loved pub theatres, the Old Red Lion Theatre. There, despite its fatalistic name, the show’s professional debut went very well indeed. A transfer to London’s lovably petite Trafalgar Studios 2 followed before, due to all the people falling over laughing – and they were sitting down, so impressive indeed – it headed to the West End’s Duchess Theatre, where its tale of the absolute worst amateur dramatics group ever continues to have audiences in stitches.

The success story reached its peak at last year’s Olivier Awards with MasterCard when the team won the Best New Comedy Award, soon announcing new offshoot shows Peter Pan Goes Wrong and the soon-to-open The Comedy About A Bank Robbery.

This year, while Peter Pan Goes Wrong finds itself in the running for Best New Comedy, The Play That Goes Wrong could also find itself on a shortlist as one of the 16 eligible shows for this year’s publically voted for Magic Radio Audience Award.

Watch the video above to hear from two of the show’s current stars Leonard Cook and Bryony Corrigan explaining why the show is so special and deserves your all-important vote.

The Play That Goes Wrong is booking at the Duchess Theatre to 26 February. You can book tickets through us here.

Voting for the Magic Radio Audience Award has now closed.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.
