CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.

The Play That Goes Wrong

Tour synopsis, cast & creatives

The Play That Goes Wrong
The inept and accident prone Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society embark on bringing an ambitious 1920's murder mystery (Murder at Haversham Manor) to The Edinburgh Festival. Chris the arrogant head of the drama society has directed the piece and cast himself as the dynamic Inspector. Desperate wannabe actress Sandra and the genuinely doting Max struggle opposite each other as the romantic interest while hapless Dennis still can't pronounce 'facade'. An hour of hilarious disaster ensues; actors get knocked out, the play gets stuck on a loop and the set falls down before the final denouement. The production ends with an uproarious, totally improvised Q&A session with the cast, where the audience can put their own questions to the unfortunate troupe.

Performers Tom Babbage (Max), Jason Callender (Jonathan), Matthew Howell (Robert), Edward Howells (Dennis), Laura Kirman (Annie), Gabriel Paul (Trevor), James Watterson (Chris), Laura White (Sandra), Sean Carey (Understudy), April Hughes (Understudy), Beth Lilly (Understudy), Jack Michael Stacey (Understudy).
