About the show: Mischief’s multi award-winning international smash hit comedy The Play That Goes Wrong is returning to Birmingham Hippodrome, following its previous sell-out successes!
The Cornley Drama Society are putting on a 1920s murder mystery, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong… does! As the accident prone thesps battle on against all the odds to reach their final curtain call, hilarious results ensue!
Hailed “a gut-busting hit” by the New York Times, The Play That Goes Wrong, now in its seventh year in the West End, has won a host of celebrity endorsements from the likes of Joanna Lumley “We laughed until the tears ran down our faces, it has to be seen” to Ant & Dec “The funniest show we’ve seen! If you can get a ticket, go!”
Don’t miss this brilliantly funny comedy that’s guaranteed to leave you aching with laughter!
