The Play That Goes Wrong set to mark a decade


The West End adaptation of The Play That Goes Wrong has announced both an extension and a new lineup as it gears up to celebrate a decade at the Duchess Theatre.

The riotous comedy premiered on West End at the Old Red Lion Theatre in 2012 before opening at the Duchess Theatre in September 2014. It has since become the latter's longest-running play since its opening in 1929, cementing its place in London's theater history.

The Play That Goes Wrong, designed to be a play within a play, follows the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society, as they struggle to stage their latest production as everything falls apart around them. The newly announced cast list features Daniel Fraser as Chris Bean, Joe Bolland as Jonathan Harris, Owen Jenkins as Robert Grove, Daniel Anthony as Dennis Tyde, Hannah Sinclair Robinson as Sandra Wilkinson, Jay Olpin as Max Bennett, Jordan Akkaya as Trevor Watson, and Billie Hamer as Annie Twilloil.

The play that went right

While a Russian Doll equivalent of a play might seem hard to follow, The Play That Goes Wrong is so wonderfully crafted that it is both easy to follow and an absolute riot all the way through. The show has had success both on Broadway and on West End, showcasing its ability to appeal to audiences with different palates.

The West End adaptation has now extended its run to 4 May 2025, with the new cast making their debut on 9 April 2024. With the show's 10th anniversary approaching this September, it's anyone's guess what surprises they have in store for in the coming season.
