New cast members will be joining The Play That Goes Wrong next month, with The Play That Goes Wrong continuing its record-breaking run as the longest production to play at the Duchess Theatre

Oliver Clayton and Elena Valentine will join The Play That Goes Wrong as Jonathan and Sandra respectively from 9 November. On 30 November, Tom Bulpett will take over the role of Chris, with Damien James joining the company. 

The cast is completed by Blayar Benn as Trevor, Michael Keane as Dennis, David Kirkbride as Robert, Jack Michael Stacey as Max, Ciara Morris as Annie, Rosemarie Akwafo, Euan Bennet, Colin Burnicle and Sally Cheng. 

The Play That Goes Wrong is the debut play from Mischief Theatre, following an amateur dramatics society as they stage their annual show, which is a murder mystery. It's a tricky task to curtain up though, as props, actors and parts of the set go missing. The Olivier Award-winning comedy play has been at the Duchess Theatre since September 2014. 

As well as The Play That Goes Wrong, Mischief's Magic Goes Wrong is now running at the Apollo Theatre to February 2022. After Magic Goes Wrong, the Apollo Theatre will be home to the West End revival of Jerusalem.

The Play That Goes Wrong is at the Duchess Theatre.
