‘The Play That Goes Wrong’ tickets available through October 2023
Clearly, things are going right?
The Play That Goes Wrong is Mischief Theatre’s debut West End play. The farcical comedy follows an amateur dramatics society as they stage their annual play — a 1920s murder mystery called The Murder at Haversham Manor. As the haphazard company prepare for the show, the cast struggle to make it to their places, thanks to missing props, set, and even actors.
The Play That Goes Wrong cast includes Tomisin Ajani as Trevor, Jo Ben Ayed as Dennis, Ashh Blackwood as Annie, Anya de Villiers as Sandra, Tendai Humphrey Sitima as Robert, Scott Hunter as Max, Oliver Mott as Jonathan, Mikhali Sen as Chris, and understudies Roisin Fahey, Charlie Richards, Stuart Vincent, Emily Waters and Jack Whittle.
Mischief Theatre company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields co-wrote The Play That Goes Wrong. Mark Bell directs, and the show features scenic design by Nigel Hook, costume design by Roberto Surace, lighting design by Ric Mountjoy, original music by Rob Falconer, and sound design by Andy Johnson.
