The Play That Goes Wrong

Stumbling through their second catastrophic year, The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society are putting on a 1920s murder mystery, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong... does! The accident-prone thespians battle against all odds to make it through to their final curtain call, with hilarious consequences!

At one point I feared I was going to hyperventilate.

Immaculately staged. Roused even a staid matinee audience to hysterics.

Boy does it hit the funny bone. Genuinely hilarious.

A great-looking, brilliantly performed piece.


The Sunday Telegraph

A joyous show builds to a delirious climax.

A triumph of split-second timing.
