Took my recently graduated daughter along. We had a great time. It was great fun, a wonderful modern farce. Well written and perfectly executed. A play within a play within a play. It was great to see an ethically diverse and young caste.

review from Richard E Warner
15 July 2022
Totally funny, exciting and entertaining. We saw this same play in NY, which was excellently done and very funny, but the London version was even more hilarious, well acted with split second precision and added touches of deftly funny content. All of us Yanks left the theater laughing all the way to Cleopatra's Needle to toast a great performance at the Duchess Theater. Richard E. Warner - Marathon, Florida

I haven't laughed so much in years
12 July 2022
A really funny play which we enjoyed very much, its must be so much harder for an actor to intentionally do things wrong and yet the cast carried it out perfectly, I would recommend the play to anyone who loves the theatre.

I loved every minute. Great acting, ingenious set effects, a wonderful spoof of the Agatha -Christie-type whodunit genre, hilarious physical clowning and, of course, infallibly funny gags. Five stars!

Everything went very wrong show
8 April 2022
I went to watch this play, but everything started going wrong, right from the start even parts of the stage started falling to pieces and gaffer tape was used, surely they could gave seen to these repairs before the play started. Once the play started there seemed to be a catalogue of errors, from stage falling to pieces, to actors forgetting their lines, wardrobe malfunctions. Then I was surprised to see that part of the stage actually collapsed almost killing some of the actors. Also there seemed to be a fight between 2 actresses that bordered on farcical as well as down right dangerous, I am extremely surprised that nobody was hurt badly or even killed. If it hadn't been for the fact that it was a birthday present and I didn't want to seem ungrateful I would have stormed out well before the interval.

Just when you think they must have run out of ways in which the set can come to pieces, something else happens. Brilliantly choreographed, cleverly written. We just hope Winston turns up okay.

The funniest laugh out loud time ever!
15 March 2020
This is the second time we have come to see The Play that Goes Wrong. This time we took my 9 year old son and friends for his birthday celebration. The boys and us 3 grown ups laughed until tears were on our eyes. Such great comedic timing by the actors and stage crew/ set. The boys said it was “the best day ever!”, and I agree! The other Goes Wrong plays are also genius.
Caroline Cluley Confirmed ticket purchaser

Hawkeye Confirmed ticket purchaser
Excellent venue for a fantastic show
8 March 2020
From the moment we took our seats we knew we were in for a great evening. Whilst we waited for the play to begin, we studied the set and tried to figure out what would happen and when, which was fun in itself. The crew stirred up some audience participation before the curtain was raised, which in turn raised a few laughs. The play was funny, energetic, silly and surprising. There was a little bit of pre-planned audience participation in the play, but the participant wasn’t a plant. Good-natured heckling which resulted in more laughs was expertly shoehorned into the script. I’d definitely go back with my 10 y-o daughter to watch it again.

The Play That Goes Wrong
1 March 2020
The play that goes wrong is slow burner then the laughs flow, then little laughs then lots of laughs. A well thought out production as i was thinking how it would play out in a small theatre but pleasantly surprised and the actors were energetic and fun to watch, the expressions the pauses wow would recommend everyone to go see this play. Actors deserved full applause they received at the end of the performance. The actress who came into the bar before the performance asking if we had seen the dog and to check under our seats when we went into the seating area, threw me, but then clocked what she mean't, and when my dad said he read in the program about the dog, the actress thanked us for supporting the production/play was a nice touch!

Great Play, if you like farces
27 February 2020
A great comedy, if you are into this type of farces. It has its awkward moments and its slow downs but overall is hilarious. Action starts normal, things are falling apart and at some point you are not sure how the hell those actors follow this well organized plan to produce this kind of mess. I found myself crying of laughter during the peak of the "plot". Overall it was two hours well spent.
Kostas Confirmed ticket purchaser
