The Play That Goes Wrong
The hit English production, “The Play That Goes Wrong”, is playing at the Comedy Theatre until 26 March. The comic play introduces The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society which is attempting to put on a 1920s murder mystery. As the title suggests, everything that can go wrong does, as the accidentprone thespians battle on against all the odds to get to their final curtain call. Described as “Fawlty Towers” meeting “Noises Off”, the play is renowned for its highly physical comedy packed with finely-tuned farce and slapstick delivered with split-second timing and ambitious daring. “The Play That Goes Wrong” has won numerous awards including the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy 2015, Broadway World UK Winner for Best New Play 2015 and Whatsonstage Award Winner for Best New Comedy 2014. The Australian cast includes Brooke Satchwell, Darcy Brown, Francine Cain, Adam Dunn, Luke Joslin, George Kemp, Jordan Prosser, Nick Simpson-deeks and Tammy Weller. James Marlowe, an original cast member from the West End production also stars.
