THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG ANNOUNCE A NEW AND EVEN LESS CAPABLE CAST
Mischief Theatre founder and writer Henry Lewis said, ‘We are disappointed to have found an even more terrible set of actors to join the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society in The Play That Goes Wrong. Regrettably, this year will see even more forgotten lines, missed cues, walk-outs and actor and director spats than ever before.’
Adam Byron will play Robert, Drew Dillon will play Dennis, Joanne Ferguson will play Annie, Fred Gray will play Trevor, April Hughes will play Sandra, Oliver Llewellyn-Jenkins will play Jonathan, Daniel Millar will play Max and Hayden Wood will play Chris. The company is completed by Adam Boakes, Katy Daghorn, George Haynes and Lindsey Scott.
Awarded the 2014 Whatsonstage.com Best New Comedy and the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, The Play That Goes Wrong continues to thrive in the West End. It is a remarkable rags-to-riches story for a play which started its life at a London fringe venue with only four paying members of the public at the first performance, and has played to an audience of over a quarter of a million.
Mischief Theatre was founded in 2008 by a group of graduates of The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) and began as an improvised comedy group. Mischief Theatre performs across the UK and internationally with improvised and original scripted work. Their other production The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is currently at the Criterion Theatre and their acclaimed production of Peter Pan Goes Wrong will return to the Apollo Theatre from 20 October 2016. The company is led by Artistic Director Henry Lewis and Company Director Jonathan Sayer.
THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG is directed by Mark Bell, with set designs by Nigel Hook, lighting by Ric Mountjoy, sound design by Andy Johnson, costumes by Roberto Surace and is currently performed by Matt Cavendish, Leonard Cook, Bryony Corrigan, Fred Gray, Harry Kershaw, Laura Kirman, James Marlowe and Laurence Pears. The Play That Goes Wrong is produced in the West End by Kenny Wax Ltd and Stage Presence Ltd.
