The Play That Goes Wrong plays follows a fictional troupe. Aiming to put on their annual show, the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society are in the middle of rehearsals for "Murder at Haversham Manor", a 1920s murder mystery. But, as the title suggests, it's not so easy for them. See the accident-prone thespians battle against all odds to make it through to their final curtain call, with hilarious consequences!

The Play That Goes Wrong play received its world premiere at the Old Red Lion Theatre, entertaining just 60 theatregoers a night. Now, thousands of audience members are entertained by Mischief’s trademarks hijinks each week in The Play That Goes Wrong West End performances.

It’s the world-renowned theatre company’s first show in a West End theatre. Since then, Mischief Theatre shows in London include The Comedy About a Bank Robbery and Magic Goes Wrong. They've also brought their trademark improvisational skills to the West End in Mischief Movie Night performances. But, if you’re wanting to see the original ‘Goes Wrong’, then you’ve come to the right place.
