Comedy Drama Set for Chaotic Hull Debut
The Play That Goes Wrong comes to the city for one week only

Following a sell-out nationwide tour in 2017 the multi-award winning The Play That Goes Wrong
brings chaos to the Hull New Theatre stage this May.

Recently crowned Broadway’s longest running show and still packing in audiences in London’s West
End, 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 and ambitious daring. 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.

Co-written by Mischief Theatre company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields,
‘The Play’ 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 almost one and a half million worldwide.

Tickets for The Play That Goes Wrong at Hull New Theatre from 21 -26 May are on sale now. Book
via the Hull City Hall Box Office, call 01482 300 306 or visit our new website
