I feared I was going to hyperventilate

Daily Mail

An unexpected gut-busting hit

New York Times

Fawlty Towers meets Noises Off in this multi award-winning smash hit comedy, now playing on Broadway and enjoying its 4th sell-out year in the West End.

The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society are putting on a 1920s murder mystery, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong... does! As the accident prone thesps battle on against all the odds to reach their final curtain call, hilarious results ensue.

Winner of the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, The Play That Goes Wrong has won a host of celebrity endorsements from the likes of Joanna Lumley: ‘We laughed until the tears ran down our faces, it has to be seen’ to Ant & Dec: ‘The funniest show we’ve seen! If you can get a ticket, go! ’

Don’t miss this brilliantly funny comedy that’s guaranteed to leave you aching with laughter.
