Exclusive Offer: The Play That Goes Wrong from £20

Reasons To See It

The time is right to see The Play That Goes Wrong, Broadway’s funniest and longest-running play! This Olivier Award-winning comedy is a hilarious hybrid of Monty Python and Sherlock Holmes. Celebrating its fifth catastrophic year in the West End, this show is guaranteed to leave you aching with laughter!

The Reviews

Given 5 stars from The Daily Mail, called a ‘Gut-busting hit‘ by the New York Times and with celebrity endorsements from the likes of Ant and Dec as the ‘funniest show we’ve seen! If you can get a ticket go‘, what are you waiting for?

The Story

The chaotic comedy follows the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society – an amdram group putting on a production of a 1920s murder mystery. But, as the show’s title may suggest, things don’t go as smoothly as they would have hoped. As the show progresses, things fall apart as the sets collapse, lines are forgotten and props go missing. But, as the saying goes, the show must go on… even if it limps to the final bow.
