London’s biggest comedy hit, the riotous theatrical disaster The Play That Goes Wrong described as Fawlty Towers meets Noises Off, will have a limited season at the Canberra Theatre from 25 April. 

The Play That Goes Wrong introduces ‘The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society‘ who are attempting to put on a 1920s murder mystery, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong…does, as the accident-prone thespians battle on against all the odds to get to their final curtain call.

Co-written by Mischief Theatre company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields and directed by Mark Bell, The Play That Goes Wrong is a highly physical comedy packed with finely-tuned farce and Buster Keaton inspired slapstick, delivered with split-second timing and ambitious daring.

The Play That Goes Wrong started its life at a London fringe venue with only four paying customers at the first performance and is now enjoying its third catastrophic year on the West End and has gone on to play to an audience of over a quarter of a million.


For your chance to WIN one of two double passes to the performance at 6:30 pm on Tuesday 25 April 2017, simply tell us in 25 words or less…“What is your all time favourite ‘accident-prone’ comedy and why?”
