The award-winning comedy The Play That Goes Wrong has toured nationally and across the pond, and it has delighted fans in NYC for over six years! The uproarious play has made its home at New World Stages (located at 340 W. 50th st.) and there’s never been a better time to see it!
Just in case you’ve been living under a rock, The Play That Goes Wrong (presented by Mischief Theatre) is a play within a play — a “whodunit” murder mystery set in an English manor full of disastrous mishaps and slapstick antics! Who knew the topic of finding a murderer could be so …funny?
Whether you want to unwind after work, have a fun date night or hang with friends and family for a good laugh, this play is a unique way to inject some humor into a mundane weeknight or weekend!
The Play That Goes Wrong won London’s Olivier Award for best new comedy. It also won for best new play for Broadway.com’s Audience Choice Award and Theater Fans’ Choice Award.
The brilliant cast is a combination of British and American talent. The company, a mix of longtime Mischief veterans and fresh faces, includes Adam Petherbridge, Brent Bateman, Trevor Braun, Julian Robertson, Chris French, Chris Lanceley, Ashley N. Hildreth, and Maggie Weston.
The raucous play is written by Henry Lewis along with Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields who are members of the award-winning Mischief Theatre company. They also collaborated to write the hilarious Mind Mangler: A Night of Tragic Illusion (currently playing in NYC through January 28!) and Peter Pan Goes Wrong.
Leave all reason and logic at the door of New World Stages and embrace the ongoing hijinks that this production has to offer.
