The Play That Goes Wrong

Spend Father’s Day at the funniest show in London. This award-winning comedy follows a drama society’s murder mystery that goes wrong with hilarious consequences.

The Play That Goes Wrong covers the antics of The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society as it puts on a 1920s murder mystery, but everything that can go wrong ... does! The accident-prone thespians battle against all odds to make it through to their final curtain call.

The New York Times called it a “gut-busting hit” with celebrity endorsements from the likes of Ant and Dec as the “funniest show we've seen! If you can get a ticket go”.

Choose one of two performances on Father’s Day Sunday 17 June at the Duchess Theatre.

Now stumbling through its fourth catastrophic year, The Play That Goes Wrong is guaranteed to leave you aching with laughter!
