New The Play That Goes Wrong cast

The new West End cast will move into the Duchess Theatre from 5 November 2019 and they’re already rehearsing to mess up in the most masterful way possible. The cast will feature David Kirkbride (Pinocchio, National Theatre) as Robert, Ross Green (Death of a Salesman, RSC) as Chris, Ciara Morris (Beast Quest, The Rose Theatre Kingston/Hampton Court Palace) as Annie, Milo Clarke (The Alchemist, The Globe) as Max, Michael Keane (The Hollow Crown, BBC) as Dennis, Blayar Benn as Trevor, Elan James (War Horse, National Theatre/UK tour) as Jonathan and Ellie Morris (Peter Pan Goes Wrong, Apollo Theatre) as Sandra.

What is The Play That Goes Wrong about?

The mission: to put on a 1920s murder mystery. Can’t be too difficult right? Wrong! The title is very true to its word when it says that things go wrong. The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society doesn’t just face the odd mishap but monumental mistakes that can’t be missed! However, these drama students are determined to make it to the end of the show, taking the phrase “the show must go on” to heart, as they battle the odds to make it to curtain call. The show has had the West End in hysterics for the past 5 years and will continue to bust guts with the new cast!

Other Mischief Theatre West End shows

Currently, the West End is home to three Mischief Theatre shows. The Play That Goes Wrong is the longest-running of their productions at the Duchess Theatre. The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is currently in its 4th year at London’s Criterion Theatre which is explosively funny and another smash hit for the company, that has had the West End raving since it began. Also showing in the West End from Mischief Theatre is Groan Ups, a brand-new comedy that is the first of three shows for their year-long residency at the West End’s Vaudeville Theatre.
