The Olivier Award-winning box office hit The Play That Goes Wrong UK Tour is about to cause havoc across the UK opening at the Marlowe Theatre Canterbury on 13 July 2021
The Play That Goes Wrong has won eleven international awards including the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy and a 2017 Tony Award for its Broadway transfer. It continues to run in the West End and has recently become Broadway’s longest-running play at the current time. It’s a remarkable success for a show which started in a tiny pub theatre and has now been seen by over 1.5 million people!
This finely-tuned farce is co-written by Mischief Theatre Company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields.
“Why would all these regional theatres want a return visit of our little murder mystery show when last year’s tour went so badly wrong. I am at a loss to understand it.” Producer, Kenny Wax.
The Play That Goes Wrong is directed by Mark Bell, with set designs by Nigel Hook, lighting by Ric Mountjoy and costumes by Roberto Surace. The Play That Goes Wrong is produced in the West End and on tour by Kenny Wax Ltd and Stage Presence Ltd.
The Play That Goes Wrong has a running time of 2 hours and 5 minutes including an interval. It is suitable for ages 8+. Please be advised that this show may cause crippling laughter!
