The Olivier Award-winning hit The Play That Goes Wrong will return to London’s Duchess Theatre, its home for the last seven years, from 18 June 2021. The production is currently booking through to 30 January 2022.
Producers Kenny Wax and Stage Presence Ltd said: “The shortest emotional distance between two people is a laugh. So, we’re delighted to have the chance to bring people together again. It’s going to be very emotional. In a good way.”
Henry Lewis and Jonathan Sayer, company directors of Mischief, added:
“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 West End cast includes: Blayar Benn, Milo Clarke, Ross Green, Michael Keane, David Kirkbride and Ciara Morris. The understudies are Tom Bulpett, Oliver Clayton and Jack Michael Stacey.
The Play That Goes Wrong is co-written by Mischief company members Lewis, Sayer and Henry Shields and is directed by Mark Bell, with set designs by Nigel Hook, costumes by Roberto Surace, lighting by Ric Mountjoy and sound design by Andy Johnson.
The Duchess Theatre reopens in line with current government guidelines plus robust risk mitigation.
