The Play That Goes Wrong celebrates 100 performances at New World Stages May 16 after re-opening at the Off-Broadway venue February 20. The occasion also commemorated the comedy’s 845th show in New York since beginning performances at Broadway’s Lyceum Theatre March 9, 2017.
Co-written by Mischief Theatre company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields, The Play That Goes Wrong introduces us to The Cornley University Drama Society, which is attempting to put on a 1920s 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.
