What people are saying about The Play That Goes Wrong

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hilarious! I went to see this play with my sister and we enjoyed it from start to finish. I rarely find a comedy play that I really find funny but we both laughed throughout. An excellent night out at a very cosy, intimate theatre. I'd highly recommend it. We're looking to book tickets for one of the other Mischief plays.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thing I’ve seen in ages Went to this play with my husband. We both roared with laughter all night. The cast were brilliant I was exhausted just watching them. The slapstick comedy was hilarious and comic timing just great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I laughed more than I have for ages I went with my husband. We don’t really like farce or slapstick, but someone recommended it to me. Surprisingly, I really enjoyed it, and laughed a lot. It is well written with some clever themes, interesting characters and plot twists and turns. A bit of light relief on a cold wet evening! Unfortunately my husband didn’t enjoy it :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent show - very funny from the first minute until the last. I had seen the show previously a couple of years ago in Wolverhampton. When friends suggested they would like to see the show, I was only too pleased to recommend it and to go again. I still marvel at the whole show, the imagination of the writer and director and the comical timing and agility required from the cast. An excellent show which I thoroughly recommend.
