The Olivier Award winning chaotic comedy tale, The Play That Goes Wrong, returned #BackOnStage at the Duchess Theatre on Friday and Eva and Tony from the Official London Theatre team went along to check it out.

Tony described the experience as “laugh-out-loud funny, riotous, dangerous and something you HAVE to see live.”

If you’re looking for a night of laughter and fun, The Play That Goes Wrong is a guaranteed rib-tickler! When the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society attempt to stage a production of a 1920s murder mystery, everything that can go wrong, does! From collapsing sets and broken walls to missing props and unfortunate injuries, this is one stage production whose struggle to reach the final curtain is packed with Keaton-esque slapstick humour. Even the welcoming speech on the reopening night was enough to make our face ache! Check it out below!

Having begun its life at the Old Red Lion Theatre with only four paying customers, The Play That Goes Wrong has since played to over two million theatre fans around the world.

Written by original Mischief Theatre company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, the masterminds also behind Olivier Award-nominated comedies Peter Pan Goes Wrong and The Comedy About A Bank Robbery, you’re in for a hilarious ride at The Play That Goes Wrong.

Give yourself something to look forward to on this dull and dreary day, and book your tickets to enjoy this award-winning West End show.
