The Play That Goes Wrong Direct From London

London’s Olivier Award-winning theatre company Mischief Theatre is bringing its smash-hit comedy The Play That Goes Wrong to New Zealand for the first time from September.

With a host of awards for Best New Comedy to its credit, The Play That Goes Wrong actually appears to be doing something right for West End audiences, and now audiences here will get their chance to witness theatrical disaster when this hilarious masterpiece stumbles into town.

Described as Fawlty Towers meets Noises Off, The Play That Goes Wrong has been enjoying five-star reviews and is currently playing to packed houses in the West End and Australia and opens on Broadway this week. This brilliant comedic piece makes its premiere in Wellington on 27 September, followed by Christchurch on 3 October and Auckland on 11 October.
