New cast set to join The Play That Goes Wrong at the Duchess Theatre from Wednesday 10 May 2017
The Play That Goes Wrong’s phenomenal popularity looks set to continue as it is now playing in six out of seven continents of the world.
The production is currently playing all over Europe including London, Paris and Budapest, in North America on Broadway, in Argentina (South America), Japan (Asia), South Africa and in Australia.
Mischief Theatre founder and writer Henry Lewis said, ‘We are simply baffled by the success of the show in the West End and all over the world. We cannot understand why audiences are finding our little murder mystery so funny. They don’t seem to be taking the play seriously at all’.
Back at the Duchess…. Jack Baldwin will play Chris, Leonard Cook will play Robert, Katy Daghorn will play Sandra, Fred Gray will play Jonathan, George Haynes will play Max, Daniel Poyser will play Trevor, Lindsey Scott will play Annie and Sydney K Smith will play Dennis. The company is completed by Tom Babbage, Jamie Birkett, Sean Carey and Beth Lilly.
The Play That Goes Wrong continues to thrive in the West End. It is a remarkable rags-toriches story for a play which started its life at a London fringe venue with only four paying members of the public at the first performance, and has played to an audience of over a quarter of a million.
Mischief Theatre was founded in 2008 by a group of graduates of The London Academy of Music and
Dramatic Art (LAMDA) and began as an improvised comedy group. Mischief Theatre performs across
the UK and internationally with improvised and original scripted work. Their other production The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is currently at the Criterion Theatre whilst The Play That Goes Wrong
completes a UK national tour in July 2017, an Australian tour finishing in June 2017 and is currently
running on Broadway, booking until September 2017. The company is led by Artistic Director Henry
Lewis and Company Director Jonathan Sayer.
