After benefitting from a large and sudden inheritance, the inept and accident-prone Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society embark on producing an ambitious 1920s murder mystery. They are delighted that neither casting issues nor technical hitches currently stand in their way. However, hilarious disaster ensues and the cast start to crack under the pressure, but can they get the production back on track before the final curtain falls?
The Play That Goes Wrong is a farcical murder mystery and a play within a play,
conceived by award-winning company Theatre Mischief.
From the adjudicators: "This was the most successful comedy I have ever had the pleasure of seeing on stage. The cast was perfect, and the direction was masterful."
