The play is hillarious! The actors are doing funny stuff before, after and of course during the play. I was laughing the whole time. Awesome experience!

A humdinger of a show which had many rolling in their seats with laughter. A special treat, a special show. Mt wife and I also appreciated the interest and care of the staff, from the security guys outside in the rain who were courteous in their task, to the box office who offered preferential seats to us as our seating had a restrictive view. We will come again and sample another such show. M&P

My wife and I had already seen the ‘Bank robbery that goes wrong’ and having thoroughly enjoyed this we’re thrilled that this play was equally as entertaining, excellent.

Infantile waste of time

Felt like a school play. Repetitive and entirely predictable humour.

The Play that goes wrong.
5 January 2020
A fantastic play which was funny from start to end. It was so clever and made me laugh out loud throughout. The actors interacted with the audience and looked like they really enjoyed performing the play even though they do it daily. I am booking the new show- Magic goes wrong as soon as possible.

It really Is very funny. A vibrant young cast that clearly enjoy their work. Plenty of slapstick but also some sharp witty dialogue. Something for all the family.

I took two grandchildren who are now too old for Pantomime and they loved it. Lots of hearty laughter throughout. I was impressed that the vibrancy still remains after all the performances they have done - the timing was perfect and the stage management incredible. Well done to all the cast.

Cried? - I almost laughed! . . . . . . no sorry, I mean, Laugh. . . (Optional - please only include information that others will find helpful when choosing a seat)

It took some time to get going. By half time I was chuckling. Some of the acting was good but some not so good. The inspector was the best actor. The Company tried hard. The audience were not all laughing at the right times. Some of the diction was inaudible. We didn’t like the victim’s brother very much. Their hearts were in the right place but some professionalism was lacking. Having paid £50 for 5 tickets I wasn’t happy to be asked for donations at the door on the way out.

Humor for teenagers
12 December 2019
The actors are really good, and the play is fun, but the humor is not very interesting. A nice play for kids and teens.

What a fun night

Great nights entertainment. Very funny and a very clever production. Thoroughly recommended.
Ian Confirmed ticket purchaser

Actors were great, show itself is very much slap stick humour. In some cases the pauses or jokes could have been sped up a bit. The second half a lot better than the first. Theatre is a great size, not a bad seat.

Brilliant time keeping. Excellent story told in the most of unusual ways. Laughter out loud thoroughly enjoyable. Looking to book for the Bank job that goes wrong.

28 November 2019
The premise and the acting were very enjoyable, particularly the first act. I found there was too much slapstick (for my taste) in the second act that bordered on silly. All in all, however, I would recommend this play for a well-rounded evening of entertainment.

Laughed the Whole Night Long!
22 November 2019
The Play That Goes Wrong was a joy to watch. The actors were all superb! Enjoyed the 1st Act of the play so much (especially the ledger part) that I was wondering how could the 2nd Act top the 1st one? Well, the 2nd Act was even better with great action and excellent laughs! Go to The Play That Goes Wrong if you want an enjoyable evening out with side-splitting laughter!
