The Play That Goes Wrong will reopen in the West End this summer, it has been confirmed. The Olivier Award-winning comedy play will resume performances at the Duchess Theatre from 18 June.

Henry Lewis and Jonathan Sayer, Company Directors of Mischief said: "We are so excited that The Play That Goes Wrong will soon be delighting audiences again. Cornley have been rehearsing on Zoom throughout lockdown and have assured us that the play is now ready and will go ahead without a hitch."

The Mischief Theatre play did return for a limited engagement in December, but was forced to close days later after the government stated a new lockdown. For the show’s return, sections of the play will be rewritten and restaged, so that the play can be staged within government social distancing guidelines.

First performed at the Duchess Theatre in September 2014, The Play That Goes Wrong follows an amateur dramatics society as they rehearse their latest murder mystery. But, in the last moments before curtain up, everything that can go wrong does. What will it take for the show to go on?

Casting includes Blayar Benn, Milo Clarke, Ross Green, Michael Keene, David Kirkbride, Ciara Morris, with understudies Tom Bulpett, Oliver Clayton and Jack Michael Stacey. 

When The Play That Goes Wrong reopens, it’ll be the only Mischief Theatre show running in London. Magic Goes Wrong is due to recommence performances from October 2021 at the Vaudeville Theatre.

The Play That Goes Wrong is at the Duchess Theatre from 18 June.
