The Play That Goes Wrong, the Olivier Award-winning box office hit, astoundingly celebrates its fourth birthday today by announcing a new booking period with tickets going on sale until 27 October 2019.
Awarded the 2014 Whatsonstage.com Best New Comedy, the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy and a Tony award for the Broadway transfer, The Play That Goes Wrong continues to miraculously delight audiences in the West End.

The West End cast includes:
Katie Bernstein Annie
Jason Callender Jonathan
Edward Judge Robert
Alastair Kirton Max
