West End hit The Play That Goes Wrong is going on the road again in 2022.
The Olivier Award-winning box office smash will return to its touring roots and embark on its fifth UK tour this spring.
The production will open at Theatre Royal Bath on 20 April before visiting Mold, Southend, Leicester, Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Plymouth, Bristol, Sheffield, Hull, Milton Keynes and Dartford, with further dates to be announced.
The Play That Goes Wrong is now booking into its ninth year in the West End and continues to delight audiences around the world.
It follows the (fictional) Cornley Drama Society as they attempt to stage a 1920s murder mystery, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong… does! As the accident prone thesps battle against all the odds to reach their final curtain call, hilarious results ensue!
Casting for the 2022 UK tour is to be announced.
The Play That Goes Wrong is co-written by Mischief company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields. The tour is directed by Sean Turner, originally directed by Mark Bell, with set designs by Nigel Hook, costumes by Roberto Surace, lighting by Ric Mountjoy and sound design by Andy Johnson. The Play That Goes Wrong is produced by Kenny Wax Ltd and Stage Presence Ltd.
Mischief’s other West End successes include Magic Goes Wrong, Groan Ups, Peter Pan Goes Wrong, Mischief Movie Night and A Comedy About A Bank Robbery. Magic Goes Wrong and Groan Ups are also currently touring the UK.
The group is also behind BBC One TV series The Goes Wrong Show which recently returned for its second series.
