The Play That Goes Wrong, London’s hit, Olivier Award-winning comedy, might not be the immediate go-to production for tips on escaping a potentially embarrassing situation. Let’s face it, they specialise in diving head first into potentially embarrassing situations. If there’s a way to make themselves look silly, they’ll hunt it down like an embarrassment-seeking missile.
And yet here they are, teaming up with TKTS, our ticket booth in Leicester Square, to produce an unmissable guide to escaping such excruciatingly uncomfortable, armpit-moistening, pant-wetting moments.
Oh, who are we kidding, they’re being hilariously silly again on film. And why not, it’s what they do best. It is, after all, why the tale of a drama society struggling valiantly to stage a murder mystery in the face of everything imaginable going wrong, won the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy and continues to make audiences giggle uncontrollably at the Duchess Theatre.
