An extremely fun evening as Julie, Ben and I enjoyed the rollicking fun that is The Play That Goes Wrong at the Duchess Theatre in Covent Garden. We had superb seats in the back row of the stalls and time flashed by as the cast of nine grappled with the series of dramatic disasters that befall them. Great stuff.
The play – by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields of the Mischief Theatre Company – originated in 2012 and won Best New Comedy at the 2015 Laurence Olivier Awards. The show has been running since 2012 in central London and has undertaken five tours of the UK in the last decade.
