Poole Lighthouse

The Play That Goes Wrong

The Play That Goes Wrong, the West End’s Olivier Award winning box office hit comes to Lighthouse, Poole’s Centre for the Arts from 20-25 February.

Winning the 2014 Whatsonstage.com Award for Best New Comedy, the 2015 Broadway World UK Award for Best New Play and the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, The Play That Goes Wrong is now enjoying its third year in the West End, where it continues to play to sold-out houses.

Co-written by Mischief Theatrecompany members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, 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. 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.

Mischief Theatre was founded in 2008 by a group of graduates of The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) and began as an improvised comedy group. The company performs across the UK and internationally with improvised and original scripted work. Now with three productions playing concurrently in the West End: The Play That Goes Wrong at The Duchess Theatre; The Comedy About A Bank Robbery at the Criterion Theatre; and Peter Pan Goes Wrong at the Apollo Theatre. The company makes its television debut this Christmas on BBC One, with a TV production of Peter Pan Goes Wrong filmed in front of a live studio audience, featuring guest star David Suchet as the narrator (transmission date to be announced). The company is led by Artistic Director Henry Lewis and Company Director Jonathan Sayer.

The touring cast features: Katie Bernstein (Annie), Jason Callender (Jonathan), Edward Howells (Dennis), Edward Judge (Robert), Alastair Kirton (Max), Meg Mortell (Sandra), Graeme Rooney (Trevor) and Patrick Warner (Chris).

The Play That Goes Wrong is directed by Mark Bell, with set designs by Nigel Hook, lighting by Ric Mountjoy and costumes by Roberto Surace.
