  • The funniest laugh out loud time ever!

    15 March 2020

    This is the second time we have come to see The Play that Goes Wrong. This time we took my 9 year old son and friends for his birthday celebration. The boys and us 3 grown ups laughed until tears were on our eyes. Such great comedic timing by the actors and stage crew/ set. The boys said it was “the best day ever!”, and I agree! The other Goes Wrong plays are also genius.
