Putting Mischief Theatre firmly on the map, The Play That Goes Wrong continues to leave audiences in fits of giggles at the Duchess Theatre. It’s the world-renowned theatre company’s first show in a West End theatre, that went on to pave the way for shows like The Comedy About a Bank Robbery and Magic Goes Wrong. But, if you’re wanting to see the original ‘Goes Wrong’, then you’ve come to the right place.
What is the plot of The Play That Goes Wrong?
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 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. It’s even premiered in Australia and on Broadway, so something must have gone right, right?

Following the announcement that Nimax Theatres will be soon “switching on their lights” and reopen all their theatres, The Play That Goes Wrong is scheduled to return at the Duchess Theatre from 19 November.
After extremely long and difficult months, the audience will get a chance to once more burst into laughter, while the Mischief Theatre creatives work hard to rewrite, and restage sections of the play to make it “COVID friendly”.
All Nimax Theatres are opening with social distancing and robust risk mitigation procedures in place. Mandatory face coverings will need to be worn at all times.
