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. The Play That Goes Wrong website.

jim (28Jun22): I just don't get it. The show doesn't make me laugh at all, it is too predictable and basically a one-joke show. Coarse acting shows just rely on continuous repetition, slap-stick and obvious "fails"... if you see a prop or bit of set then you can guess what will go wrong. Professional cast do very well but the material is thin ... this may be why most coarse cating shows are one-acts! 2
