The play had previously enjoyed a UK tour, as well as a run at the Trafalgar Studios 2 and the Old Red Lion fringe venue.
From 18 August 2015 the cast will include Leonard Cook (Robert), Bryony Corrigan (Sandra), Harry Kershaw (Chris), Laura Kirman (Annie), Chris Leask (Trevor), James Marlowe (Max), Laurence Pears (Jonathan), Niall Ransome (Dennis), Adam Byron, Matt Cavendish, April Hughes and Sarah Madigan.
The Play That Goes Wrong introduces The ‘Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society’ who are attempting to put on a 1920s’ murder mystery, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong… does, as the accident prone thespians battle on against all the odds to get to their final curtain call.
The play is designed by Nigel Hook, with lighting by Ric Mountjoy. It is produced in the West End by Kenny Wax Ltd and Stage Presence Ltd.
