The Play That Goes Wrong Causes Calamity at York’s Grand Opera House

The Olivier Award-winning box office hit The Play That Goes Wrong is coming to York in September as part of its exciting UK tour.

Having toured the country three times already, it’s obviously SUPER popular and there’s good reason for it.

The show has won many awards including the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy and a Tony Award for the Broadway transfer. The Play That Goes Wrong is now in its seventh year in the West End and has become a global phenomenon with productions in over 35 countries and across six continents. Since its first performance at a London fringe venue, it has played to an audience of over two million worldwide.

The Play That Goes Wrong features the (fictional) Cornley Drama Society who are putting on a 1920s murder mystery, ‘The Murder at Haversham Manor’. As the accident prone thesps battle against all the odds to reach their final curtain call, hilarious results ensue! Everything that can go wrong, does, but in all the very best ways. I’ve seen the show a few times now and I’m sure you’ll have a riotously good time.

The touring cast presents: Tom Babbage (Max), Tom Bulpett (Chris), Seán Carey (Jonathan), Leonard Cook (Robert), Edward Howells (Dennis), April Hughes (Sandra), Laura Kirman (Annie), Gabriel Paul (Trevor), with understudies: Katie Hitchcock, Damien James, Edi De Melo and Aisha Numah.

Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields co-wrote the show. The cast of Mischief theatre are genius creatives and have created a wonderous body of work since meeting at drama school. Their other successes include Peter Pan Goes Wrong, A Comedy About A Bank RobberyGroan Ups, Mischief Movie Night and Magic Goes Wrong. Plus, of course, their TV series The Goes Wrong Show!

Don’t miss the show when it comes to the Grand Opera House, York, from 28th September to 3rd October.
