A great laugh to wash
away those winter blues!
at the Duchess Theatre
The Theatre loves nothing more than itself – especially when things aren’t going to plan! This kind of self-sustaining narcissism has made hits of everything from The Producers and Spamalot to Michael Frayn’s Noises Off……
The Play That Goes Wrong begins before the curtain has even been raised, as the audience witness the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society preparing to stage their annual production – which this year happens to be a 1920s murder mystery ‘Murder at Haversham Manor’.
Winner of the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, The Play That Goes Wrong bounces back into London’s West End at the following two previous runs and a sell-out season at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Join the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society as they attempt to stage a complex murder mystery drama where, as the title suggests, everything that possibly could go wrong does! The over-the-top thespians struggle to keep the 1920s mystery afloat, as accident prone actors get into mischief, personal life is dragged on stage and even the set begins to collapse around them.
Described as ‘Faulty Towers’ meets The Mousetrap, The Play That Goes Wrong is guaranteed to have you rolling in the aisles. From humble beginnings at the Old Red Lion in Islington, the Mischief Theatre Company who have both written and performed The Play That Goes Wrong join the ranks of the West End delivering this innovative farce with utter precision, expert comic timing and ruthless energy.
The Play That Goes Wrong is written and performed by members of the Mischief Theatre Company. The group was founded in 2008 out of graduates from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, beginning life as an improv-comedy group.
Currently the cast includes Lindsey Scott, Daniel Poyser, Jack Baldwin, Fred Gray, Sydney K. Smith, Leonard Cook, Katy Daghorn and George Haynes, with Tom Babbage, Jamie Birkett, Seán Carey and Beth Lilly.
With a murder having been committed in a country house isolated by a fierce snowstorm, there are multiple suspects, and an Inspector hell bent on solving the crime – the perfect ingredients for a complex thriller..
As props start to disappear, actors go missing and the set begins to fall down around the cast, mayhem ensues, but the amateur thespians struggle on against all the odds. But will they ever make the final curtain? And at what cost…?
Please join Solent Events & Leisure for a fun-packed February Sunday in London – you deserve it!

What Our Customers Are Saying
Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!
We so enjoyed ourselves on Tuesday Lin, and it was a “mystery” right up until 3pm – well done. I’m so glad I found Solent Events. It’s so much more fun going with other like-minded people & takes the responsibility out of driving.Maureen Colyer
Dear Lin, Thank you for sending the photographs from ‘Collabro’ at the BIC. We had a lovely first outing with Solent Events. Thanks for all the hard work you put into it.Linda Hunt
Hi Lin, Just a quick thank you from us both for arranging such a brilliant day yesterday. We had such a lovely time and the hi-light for us was the steam train trip! Looking forward to the next Mystery TourSue & Bert Barnes
