The Play That Goes Wrong, the Olivier Award-winning box office hit, today announces that a new cast at the Duchess Theatre from Tuesday 26th February 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 delight audiences in the West End. The remarkable rags-to-riches story shows no signs of slowing down for a play which started its life at a London fringe venue with only four paying customers at the first performance. Since then, it has played to an audience of over two million.
