Casting news

THE PLAY That Goes Wrong, the Olivier Award-winning box office hit, has announced a new booking period at the Duchess Theatre with tickets going on sale until April 7, 2019.

And from Wednesday, March 28, 2018, a new cast includes Katie Bernstein (as Annie), Jason Callender (Jonathan), Edward Judge (Robert), Alastair Kirton (Max), Edward Howells (Dennis), Meg Mortell (Sandra), Graeme Rooney (Trevor) and Patrick Warner (Chris).

The company will be completed by Natasha Culley, Matthew Howell, Helana Muir and James Watterson.

Awarded the 2014 Whatsonstage.com Best New Comedy, the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy and a Tony Award for the Broadway transfer, The Play That Goes Wrong continues to delight audiences in the West End.

A remarkable rags-to-riches story that shows no signs of slowing down, The Play That Goes Wrong started life at a London fringe venue with only four paying customers at the first performance. Since then, it has played to an audience of over a million. This Autumn, it will be playing simultaneously in twelve countries.

Co-written by Mischief Theatre company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, and directed by Mark Bell, The Play That Goes Wrong is a highly physical comedy packed with finely-tuned farce and Buster Keaton inspired slapstick delivered with split-second timing.

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 2018 UK Tour of The Play That Goes Wrong will play at over 35 venues nationwide, until October 2018.
