OLIVIER Award-winning Broadway comedy The Play That Goes Wrong arrives at Swindon’s Wyvern Theatre on Monday.

Fawlty Towers meets Noises Off in this multi award-winning smash production, now enjoying its fourth year in the West End.

It’s a play about a play. The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society is putting on a 1920s murder mystery, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong does go wrong. The accident prone actors battle on against all the odds to reach their final curtain call - with hilarious results.

Look out for Swindon-born cast member Benjamin McMahon, who went on to the ALRA Drama School before securing the role of Dennis in this production.

Play co-writer Jonathan Sayer said: “I suppose we have all worked in theatre and have experiences of things going awry in shows we have been in. Some of my favourite moments watching theatre has been where things have gone dreadfully wrong and the actors are forced to deal with the mistake and try to keep the show on track.”

Hailed “a gut-busting hit” by the New York Times, The Play That Goes Wrong has won a host of celebrity endorsements from the likes of Joanna Lumley and Ant & Dec.

The comedy runs from Monday to next Saturday, June 11-16, beginning at 7.30pm with a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm.

Tickets are £27.50 to £35. To book, call 01793 524481 or visit swindontheatres.co.uk.
