Mischief Theatre to create THE GOES WRONG SHOW for six-part BBC series

According to Variety magazine, the BBC have commissioned British Comedy writers Mischief Theatre to create a six-part comedy series, The Gone Wrong Show, to be filmed in front of a live audience and televised. Topics covered are to include courtroom dramas and spy thrillers with disastrous outcomes.

Mischief Theatre launched their first play, The Play That Goes Wrong, at the Old Red Lion Theatre in London in 2012. The success of the show saw it transfer to the Trafalgar Studios in 2013, tour the UK and internationally and then open at the Duchess Theatre in the West End in September 2014 where it is still playing today. The show has just finished a two year run on Broadway and is set to re-open this month at a smaller, off-broadway theatre.

Their follow up show The Comedy About A Bank Robbery opened in the West End in 2016 and is still going strong today. Peter Pan Goes Wrong has enjoyed annual success around the UK and was commissioned by the BBC for a one hour TV special in 2016 and the following year they broadcast A Christmas Carol Goes Wrong.

Earlier this year it was announced that Mischief Theatre will start a year long residency later in 2019 at the Vaudeville Theatre, premiering new plays they have written, starting with Groan Up’s, telling the story of what it is like to grow up and asking if schools determine our future.
