The Play That Goes Wrong visits Bromley

Mischief Theatre’s West End hit comedy The Play That Goes Wrong is to embark on a 17 week UK tour this spring and will be visiting The Churchill Theatre in Bromley from Monday 3rd to Saturday 8th February.

In 2013 The Play That Goes Wrong enjoyed a successful run at the Old Red Lion in London before transferring to Trafalgar Studios for two successive runs. The show then enjoyed a sell-out season at The Edinburgh Festival.

The production is co-written by Mischief Theatre company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields. It’s 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 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 thesps battle on against all the odds to get to their final curtain call.

A commitment to at least two performances is required. The owners will receive a pair of tickets to see the show on the dog’s night off and a family ticket (4 people) for their dog’s performances. The winner will be picked on 29th January 2014.

Following it’s run in Bromley the show will visit a further sixteen venues until 18th June 2014.
