MALVERN THEATRES are hoping that local audiences will give a big thumbs up for The Play That Goes Wrong.

The West End’s Olivier Award winning box office hit will enjoy a run in Malvern from Monday, August 13, to Saturday, August 18.

A spokesman said: “Winning eleven international awards, including the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy and a 2017 Tony Award for its Broadway transfer, The Play That Goes Wrong continues to play to sold out houses in the West End, whilst enjoying its new status as Broadway’s longest running play.

“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 almost one and a half million worldwide.”

The spokesman added: “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 goes wrong, as the accident prone thespians battle on against all the odds to get to their final curtain call.” The Play That Goes Wrong is directed by Mark Bell, with set designs by Nigel Hook, lighting by Ric Mountjoy and costumes by Roberto Surace.
