Not the most professional of theatre companies has staged a new play. Alas, as the title suggests, during the performance all that can, goes wrong? The lead female protagonist is nearly killed by her colleagues, a number of actors find out that, to remember a line is an insurmountable challenge, and the ensemble literally demolishes the whole stage set.Despite the catastrophes, our ensemble comes to terms with each obstacle. They complete the performance by exerting all their strength – and in some cases, risking their life.
The Play That Goes Wrong is not merely a classic comedy set in backstage theatre. Along with the battery of classic stage gags, it presents quite some artistic acting skills.The production brings together British verbal humour with the exuberance of farce and spectacularity of new circus.
The British hit comedy receive the 2015 Lawrence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy.
