The Play That Goes Wrong announces a new booking period with tickets going on sale until 25 February 2018.
The show’s phenomenal popularity looks set to continue this year as one bunch of would-be thespians fly across the pond today to try their luck on Broadway at the Lyceum Theatre and another cast have just opened the show upside down in Melbourne at the start of a sixteen-week Australian tour.
Awarded the 2014 Whatsonstage.com Best New Comedy and the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, The Play That Goes Wrong continues to thrive. It is a remarkable rags-to-riches 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 now 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. The company is led by Artistic Director Henry Lewis and Company Director Jonathan Sayer.
