Full casting announced for ‘The Play That Goes Wrong’ West End reopening
Performances begin at the Duchess Theatre from 18 June.
Ahead of The Play That Goes Wrong’s reopening next month, a new cast has been announced. The Olivier Award-winning comedy play will resume performances at the Duchess Theatre from 18 June, with The Play That Goes Wrong tickets on sale now.
The cast includes Blayar Benn as Trevor, Ross Green as Chris, Elan James as Jonathan, Michael Keene as Dennis, David Kirkbride as Robert, Jack Michael Stacey as Max, Ciara Morris as Annie and Ellie Morris as Sandra. The understudies are Rosemarie Akwafo, Euan Bennet, Colin Burnicle, Sally Cheng and Oliver Clayton.
The upcoming reopening of The Play That Goes Wrong marks the show’s second return in a year. Performances did resume in December 2020, but were forced to be suspended two weeks in, due to the government bringing in a new lockdown.
The Play That Goes Wrong follows an amateur dramatics society in the final moments before staging a murder mystery. In what’s now “goes wrong” fashion, everything that could go wrong does, including missing props, set and even actors.
The Play That Goes Wrong first opened at the Duchess Theatre in September 2014, winning an Olivier Award for best entertainment/comedy. It’s the first Mischief Theatre show to reopen its doors, with Magic Goes Wrong back at the Vaudeville Theatre from October 2021.
The Play That Goes Wrong tickets are on sale now.
