The Play That Goes Wrong debuted at the Old Red Lion Theatre in 2012 and has been delighting audiences ever since. The show follows the trials and tribulations of the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society. After mega-successful productions including James and the Peach, Cat, The Lion and the Wardrobe, and more, the drama society is taking on a murder mystery that’s strikingly similar to Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap. Named The Murder at Haversham Manor, the play quickly becomes a theatrical disaster in every sense of the world.
The show offers audiences a glimpse of all the hilarious backstage drama including performing last-minute repairs on the set pieces. As the play proceeds, a series of mishaps begin to unfold one by one including falling props, collapsing floors, actors forgetting lines, stomping on fingers, breaking character, and getting stuck in a grandfather clock. Anything that you can imagine going wrong on stage during a play, goes wrong at The Play That Goes Wrong!
There has been a murder at a country manor and an inspector is assigned to find who the culprit is. In the hands of the accident-prone thespians, The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society, this classic murder mystery gets turned around its head and everything that can go wrong does! Watch the cast and crew fight all odds to get through to their final curtain call, with laugh-out-loud consequences!

One of the smallest proscenium-based theatres in the West End, the Duchess Theatre was designed by Ewen Barr. He fought back against the many challenges of the unorthodox-shaped site to design a moderately successful theatre. The Duchess Theatre opened in November 1929 with a production of Hubert Griffith’s Tunnel Trench. The early years of the theatre witnessed short runs of plays including many iconic works by Emlyn Williams and T. S. Elio amongst others!
