The award-winning hit comedy, The Play That Goes Wrong, continues it “sell-out” success in Cape Town at The Theatre on The Bay and announces a return season to Pieter Toerien’s Montecasino Theatre in September 2017!
In the words of Pieter Toerien – “The Play That Goes Wrong is the FUNNIEST play I have EVER seen!”
Described by theatre audiences as Fawlty Towers meets Noises Off, this new hit comedy has won every major award on the London stage – 2015 Olivier Award Winner for Best New Comedy/ 2015 BroadwayWorld UK Winner for Best New Play/ 2014 WhatsOnStage Award Winner for Best New Comedy! The South African production is directed by Alan Committie and features an awesome comedy cast including Robert Fridjhon, Russel Savadier, Craig Jackson, Roberto Pombo, Nicole Franco, Louis Viljoen and Sive Gubangxa.
It is a celebration of the best of live theatre… and the worst. The Cornley (read North-Riding) Polytechnic Drama Society is putting on a 1920s murder mystery, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong… does! The accident-prone thespians battle against all odds to make it through to their final curtain call, with hilarious consequences!
Actress Joanna Lumley came out a recent London performance and said: “We laughed until the tears ran down our faces! It has to be seen!”
What’s On Stage said “It’s as though The Mousetrap has been taken over by Monty Python!”
Given 5 stars from The Daily Mail, called a ‘Gut-busting hit’ by the New York Times and with celebrity endorsements from the likes of Ant and Dec: ‘Funniest show we’ve seen! If you can get a ticket go.’
