The Play That Goes Wrong -- final seats released

The Play That Goes Wrong -- final seats released



NEW DATES ANNOUNCED

Great news! Due to Kim & Kanye buying heaps of tickets, we've had to release the final week of performances in Auckland from October 17 - 22 for
THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG!

The ticket presale starts today, so snap them up quickly before the commoners buy them all.

Don't worry Wellington & Christchurch, we still have tickets for you!


WELLINGTON, OPERA HOUSE
27 Sept - 1 Oct (8 performances only)
Special Thurs 2pm performance


CHRISTCHURCH, ISACC THEATRE ROYAL
3 - 8 Oct (8 performances only)

AUCKLAND, ASB WATERFRONT THEATRE
11 - 22 Oct
Special Thurs 12 Oct, 2pm performance

Acclaimed with five-star reviews and currently playing to packed houses in the West End and on Broadway, this brilliant comedic piece will make you laugh so much, you may hyperventilate.

The play introduces ‘The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society' who are attempting to put on a 1920s murder mystery, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong…does, as the accident-prone thespians battle on against all the odds to get to their final curtain call.

Co-written by Mischief Theatre company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields and directed by Mark Bell, The Play That Goes Wrong is a highly physical comedy packed with finely-tuned farce and Buster Keaton inspired slapstick delivered with split-second timing and ambitious daring.

The Play That Goes Wrong features the suitably inept UK touring cast. We’ll have none of those convicts from the Australian tour in NZ. Just Brits -- the ones who sent them there.

The Play That Goes Wrong got it absolutely right when right when it clinched a number of accolades including a Tony Award this year, Olivier Award for Best New Comedy 2015, BroadwayWorld UK Winner for Best New Play 2015 and WhatsOnStage Award Winner for Best New Comedy 2014. The critically-acclaimed production continues to thrive in the West End playing to sold-out houses.

Mischief Theatre was founded in 2008 by a group of graduates of The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art and began as an improvised comedy group. The company perform across the UK and internationally with improvised and original scripted work. This is Mischief's first New Zealand Tour and they look forward to Going Wrong, upside down, on the other side of the world.
