Popular West End Comedy Visits The Black Country Next Week

Olivier Award winning comedy; 'The Play That Goes Wrong', visits Wolverhampton Grand Theatre from 3rd - 8th April as part of a brand new UK tour.

Awarded the 2014 Whatsonstage.com Best New Comedy and the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, the show is now enjoying huge success in the West End and Broadway, where it continues to play to sold-out houses. 

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 since played to an audience of over a quarter of a million. Producer Kenny Wax said: 

"The Play That Goes Wrong has been licensed to 25 countries and is currently playing in Japan, Hungary and Paris as well as in London. 

"It goes to prove that audiences come to the theatre to be entertained and that the fun to be had in watching brilliantly plotted physical comedy is universal."

Co-written by Mischief Theatre company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, The Play That Goes Wrong is a highly physical comedy packed with finely-tuned farce and Buster Keaton inspired slapstick delivered with split-second timing. 

WATCH: The West End cast brought the show to the Royal Variety Performance in 2015.

The play introduces The 'Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society' who are attempting to put on a 1920s' murder mystery. 

But as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong does, as the accident prone thespians battle on against all the odds to get to their final curtain call.

Tickets are on sale in person at the theatre Box Office, by calling 01902 42 92 12 or online at grandtheatre.co.uk.
