A new cast will begin performances February 26 in the London production of Mischief Theatre's Olivier-winning The Play That Goes Wrong at the Duchess Theatre.
The incoming company features Kazeem Tosin Amore as Robert, Jake Curran as Chris, Catherine Dryden as Annie, Bobby Hirston as Max, Benjamin McMahon as Dennis, Gabriel Paul as Trevor, Steven Rostance as Jonathan, and Elena Valentine as Sandra.
The understudies will be David Kristopher Brown, Liam Horrigan, Matthew Howell, Louisa Sexton, and Laura White.
Co-written by Mischief Theatre company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields, The Play That Goes Wrong introduces The Cornley University Drama Society, who are attempting to put on a 1920’s murder mystery, but everything that can go wrong does, as the accident-prone thespians battle on against all odds to get to their final curtain call.
The production is directed by Mark Bell, with set designs by Nigel Hook, lighting by Ric Mountjoy, sound design by Andy Johnson, and costumes by Roberto Surace.
The Play That Goes Wrong is produced in the West End by Kenny Wax Ltd. and Stage Presence Ltd. The Broadway production closed at the Lyceum Theatre earlier this year. The show is not leaving New York, however, as the comedy will transfer to Off-Broadway's New World Stages.
