 New casting has been announced for the Mischief Theatre comedy The Play That Goes Wrong, which is currently in its fourth year at the West End's Duchess Theatre.

The production sees a drama group, Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society, staging a new production of a murder mystery titled The Murder at Haversham Manor. But in typical Mischief Theatre style, things don't quite go to plan, often resulting in hilarious consequences.

The new cast for The Play That Goes Wrong at the Duchess Theatre includes: Kazeem Tosin Amore as Robert, Jake Curran as Chris, Catherine Dryden as Annie, Bobby Hirston as Max, Benjamin McMahon as Dennis, Gabriel Paul as Trevor, Steven Rostance as Jonathan and Elena Valentine as Sandra.

The cast, which begins performances on 26th February, is completed by David Kristopher Brown, Liam Horrigan, Matthew Howell, Louisa Sexton and Laura White.

The Play That Goes Wrong began performances a the 60-seater pub theatre the Old Red Lion in London in 2012 before moving to Trafalgar Studios and ultimately the Duchess Theatre in the West End. Since The Play That Goes Wrong opened in London, Mischief Theatre has also have success with Peter Pan Goes Wrong and The Comedy About A Bank Robbery.

Last week, tickets for Groan Ups, the first in a trio of new productions from the company, went on sale. Mischief will begin a year-long residency at the Vaudeville Theatre, premiereing a number of brand new shows.  

The Play That Goes Wrong is booking at the Duchess Theatre until 7th April 2019.
