The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society are 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! Given five stars by The Daily Mail, called a "gut-busting hit" by The New York Times, and with celebrity endorsements from the likes of Ant and Dec as the "funniest show we've seen! If you can get a ticket go", what are you waiting for?

Now stumbling through its sixth catastrophic year, THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG is guaranteed to leave you aching with laughter!

Casting includes Kazeem Tosin Amore, Jake Curran, Catherine Dryden, Bobby Hirston, Benjamin McMahon, Gabriel Paul, Steven Rostance, Elena Valentine, David Kristopher Brown, Liam Horrigan, Matthew Howell, Louisa Sexton and Laura White.
