The Play That Goes Wrong

Where Brisbane - - What’s On Brisbane -

The UK’S Olivier Award-win­ning theatre com­pany Mis­chief Theatre brings its com­edy mas­ter­piece “The Play That Goes Wrong” to Bris­bane for the first time this month. The play in­tro­duces The Corn­ley Polytech­nic Drama So­ci­ety, who are at­tempt­ing to put on a 1920s mur­der mys­tery, but as the ti­tle sug­gests, ev­ery­thing that can go wrong, does, as the ac­ci­dent-prone thes­pi­ans bat­tle on against all the odds to get to their fi­nal cur­tain call. “The Play That Goes Wrong” is a highly phys­i­cal com­edy packed with finely-tuned farce and slap­stick de­liv­ered with split-sec­ond tim­ing and am­bi­tious dar­ing. Win­ner of Best New Com­edy at Lon­don’s Olivier Awards last year and ac­claimed with five star re­views, “The Play That Goes Wrong” is cur­rently play­ing to packed houses in the West End and makes its de­but on Broad­way next year.
