The Play That Goes Wrong

It’s interesting how a life of a play or musical can take on, The Play That Goes Wrong has undertaken a fascinating journey. After having only four paying customers at the first performance at a London fringe venue, its now enjoying its third year on the West End.

Written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields from the Mischief Theatre who were graduates of The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.

Audiences in Australia will get to experience, The Play That Goes Wrong when the tour begins at Melbourne’s Comedy Theatre from 22 February until 26 March, 2017.

Presented by Lunchbox Theatrical Productions, Kenny Wax Ltd and Stage Presence
in association with David Atkins Enterprises and ABA International Touring.


We are introduced to ‘The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society’ in The Play That Goes Wrong.  They are attempting to put on a 1920s murder mystery, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong…does.

Directed by Mark Bell. The cast includes Nick Simpson-Deeks, Brooke Satchwell, Darcy Brown, Francine Cain, Adam Dunn, Luke Joslin, George Kemp, Jordan Prosser and Tammy Weller.  James Marlowe, an original cast member of the West End production of the play will be part of the Australian cast.
