Good evening. I'm Inspector Carter. Take my case. This must be Charles Haversham! I'm sorry, this must've given you all a damn shock. After benefitting from a large and sudden inheritance, the inept and accident-prone Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society embark on producing an ambitious 1920s murder mystery. They are delighted that neither casting issues nor technical hitches currently stand in their way. However, hilarious disaster ensues and the cast start to crack under the pressure, but can they get the production back on track before the final curtain falls? The Play That Goes Wrong is a farcical murder mystery, a play within a play, conceived and performed by award-winning company Theatre Mischief. It was first published as a one-act play and is published in this new edition as a two-act play.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Immaculately staged . . . reduced even a staid matinee audience to hysterics * The Times *
Effortless slapstick that Keaton and Chaplin would be hard pushed to trump * Whatsonstage *
For a side-splitting, jolly good laugh, The Play That Goes Wrong is exactly what the doctor ordered * British Theatre Guide *
A highly developed sense of mischief and cheeky aplomb ... it's all very silly ... but it's done with just the right amount of tongue-in-cheek. * Guardian *
Boy does it hit the funny bone ... a rising tide of hysteria ... an enduring cult hit in the making * Daily Telegraph *
This new comedy has, of course, actually done everything right . . . there are laughs to be had here . . . * Time Out London *
Farce is rarely funnier; the theatre of the absurd, rarely more surreal. * Independent *
often very funny . . . slapstick, done well, can reduce even the gravest souls into tears and there are some perfectly timed pratfalls here * Financial Times *
these improv stand-up Lamda graduates are definitely on to something. * Daily Express *
