The Play That Goes Wrong celebrates its third West End birthday

The Play That Goes Wrong stumbles on to September 2018

First Published 6 September 2017, Last Updated 6 September 2017

Something must be going right for the disastrous Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society (better known as Mischief Theatre) at the Duchess Theatre, as their riotous The Play That Goes Wrong marks its third West End birthday by extending until 30 September 2018.

The Olivier Award-winning Best New Comedy has released thousands of new tickets to mark the momentous – or, in the show’s own words, “miraculous” – occasion, which coincides with the announcement of a new UK tour from January 2018.

The Play That Goes Wrong continues to thrive in the West End with its hilariously chaotic slapstick comedy. The remarkable rags-to-riches story shows no signs of slowing down for a play which started its life at a London fringe venue, with only four paying customers at the first performance. Since then, it has played to an audience of over a million.

Having transferred to Broadway earlier in the year, this Autumn, The Play That Goes Wrong will be playing simultaneously in twelve countries.

The Play That Goes Wrong follows the antics of the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society, a hapless but enthusiastic bunch who are trying their very best to stage a production of a 1920s murder mystery. But it’s not quite as easy as it looks, and as the show’s title might suggest, everything that can go wrong… does.

If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

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.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
