Olivier Award winning theatre company Mischief Theatre are bringing their comedy masterpiece The Play That Goes Wrong to Australia for the first time from February next year.  Acclaimed with five star reviews and currently playing to packed houses in the West End this brilliant comedic piece will open in Melbourne on 22 February followed by Adelaide on 28 March, Sydney from 5 April, Canberra from 26 April 2017, Brisbane from 6 May 2017, and in Perth from 31 May 2017.

The play 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.

Co-written by Mischief Theatre company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields and directed by Mark Bell, The Play That Goes Wrong is a highly physical comedy packed with finely-tuned farce and Buster Keaton inspired slapstick delivered with split-second timing and ambitious daring.

Original London Mischief Director Mark Bell has been in Australia holding auditions to find a suitably incompetent bunch of actors to deliver Mischief Theatre’s trademark comic mayhem.  The Australian cast will be announced shortly.
