A spokesman said: “The show’s success is a testament to the hard work and determination of a group of drama school graduates who became friends, set up a company under the name Mischief and created an extraordinary body of work. The Play That Goes Wrong shows no signs of slowing down since its first performance at a London fringe venue with only four paying customers. Since then, it has played to an audience of over two million and had productions in over 30 countries. The play features the (fictional) Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society who are putting on a 1920s murder mystery, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong … does! As the accident-prone thesps battle against all the odds to reach their final curtain call, hilarious results ensue!”

Mischief’s other West End successes include Peter Pan Goes Wrong, A Comedy About A Bank Robbery and Magic Goes Wrong; and 2019 saw a brand new six-part TV series for BBC One: The Goes Wrong Show, written and performed by the founding Mischief Theatre members.The Play That Goes Wrong is co-written by Mischief company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields.
