New cast announced for The Play That Goes Wrong in the West End
The hit comedy looks for world domination...
Following the Broadway opening of the Olivier Award-winning comedy The Play That Goes Wrong, producers have today announced the new cast for the original London production at the Duchess Theatre from 10 May 2017.
The new cast will include Jack Baldwin as Chris, Leonard Cook as Robert, Katy Daghorn as Sandra, Fred Gray as Jonathan, George Haynes as Max, Daniel Poyser as Trevor, Lindsey Scott as Annie and Sydney K Smith as Dennis, alongside Tom Babbage, Jamie Birkett, Sean Carey and Beth Lilly.
The hit comedy is currently playing all over Europe including London, Paris and Budapest, in North America on Broadway, in Argentina (South America), Japan (Asia), South Africa and in Australia.
Mischief Theatre founder and writer Henry Lewis said: "We are simply baffled by the success of the show in the West End and all over the world. We cannot understand why audiences are finding our little murder mystery so funny. They don’t seem to be taking the play seriously at all".
The Play That Goes Wrong started its life at a London fringe venue with only four paying members of the public at the first performance, and has since played to an audience of over a quarter of a million worldwide. Created by Mischief Theatre who were founded in 2008 by a group of graduates of The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, the group began as an improvised comedy group.
Directed by Mark Bell it features set designs by Nigel Hook, lighting by Ric Mountjoy, sound design by Andy Johnson, costumes by Roberto Surace and is produced in the West End by Kenny Wax Ltd and Stage Presence Ltd.
The Play That Goes Wrong tickets are on sale to 25 February 2018.
