By Henry Lewis, Henry Shields, and Jonathan Sayer | Directed by Susan Baer Collins
Tony Award Winner The Play That Goes Wrong is the side-splitting farce that has taken the theatrical world by storm. Called “the funniest play Broadway has ever seen” (The Huffington Post), this tour de force is filled with mayhem, pratfalls and a set that has a life of its own. A masterpiece of malfunction, The Play That Goes Wrong is the can’t-miss theatrical experience of the season.

About the authors: Henry, Henry, and Jonathan met while training at The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). All core members of Mischief Theatre, they had already worked in comedy together for several years before they started out as a writing team. The three’s first piece was THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG (winner – Best New Comedy – Olivier Awards and What’s On Stage Awards). The show started out on the London and Edinburgh fringe before touring the UK and internationally and then returning to the West End in September 2014, where it is still running. It’s also playing on Broadway and heading out on a US tour in 2018 and has been performed in over 20 other countries around the world. PETER PAN GOES WRONG was the trio’s second piece, opening in November 2014 for a UK tour before a hugely successful West End season in Christmas 2015. Henry, Henry, and Jonathan recently adapted the script of PETER PAN GOES WRONG for the BBC, which was filmed with the original West End cast and broadcast to rave reviews on New Year’s Eve. They were invited back to wreak more havoc at the BBC in 2017 with CHRISTMAS CAROL GOES WRONG on BBC1. THE COMEDY ABOUT A BANK ROBBERY marks their third writing project as a trio and earned them another Olivier Nomination. @mischiefcomedy and mischieftheatre.co.uk. Click here to read more.
