The Play That Goes Wrong In Austin Print E-mail
Thursday, 25 October 2018 09:21

If you have ever wondered what it would look like if anything and everything went wrong in a play, you don't have to look any further. Similar to the style of a Carol Burnett Show Skit, The Play That Goes Wrong shows exactly how quickly a production can literally fall apart and it does so in a fantastical manner.

Set in modern times, The Play That Goes Wrong is essentially a play within a play. The play, presented by a college troupe, is a murder mystery and it goes completely awry the moment it begins. It is a nice break from the Shakespearean style plays that are usually performed. One of the best aspects of this play is how much the characters are invested into their show and roles, and will stop at nothing to keep the show going. Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields, the writers of The Play That Goes Wrong, clearly know comedy and more importantly, understand that timing is everything. Many of the truly hilarious scenes involved either repetition of lines, or long drawn out pauses. There was also a great combination of slapstick comedy that had the audience in stitches.

An added element that makes the play fun is that the characters sometime break the 4th wall and interact with the audience. Even before the actual play began, a few of the characters walked around the audience, in character, speaking to different audience members and asked questions such as, "Has anyone seen a dog around here?" In the middle of the show, the actor playing the detective gets upset with the audience and demands that they stop laughing, only making the audience howl louder. If you are having a bad day or felt like absolutely nothing was going your way, The Play That Goes Wrong will lift your spirits and make you feel as though your day was actually not that bad. Anyone who needs a pick me up or who just loves comedy should absolutely go see The Play That Goes Wrong. You will not regret it!

The Play That Goes Wrong runs through Sunday, October 28th. For more information, call (800) 731-7469 or click here to buy tickets!

The Play That Goes Wrong, the hilarious Tony Award-winning hit Broadway comedy, comes to Bass Concert Hall this week. The Broadway production opened at the Lyceum Theatre on April 2, 2017 and has extended it's run through January 2019 due to popular demand. It's the second longest running show in the history of the Lyceum Theatre.

Winner of a Tony Award for Best Set Design, Broadway.com's Audience Choice Award for Best Play, and the Theater Fans Choice Award for Best Play, The Play That Goes Wrong is a comedy about the theatre that is a hybrid of Monty Python and Sherlock Holmes. The play introduces The 'Cornley University Drama Society' who are attempting to put on a 1920s' murder mystery, but everything ends up going wrong. The accident-prone thespians move forward against the odds to their final curtain call.

The Play That Goes Wrong is directed by Mark Bell, featuring set design by Nigel Hook, lighting design by Ric Mountjoy, sound design by Andy Johnson and costume design by Roberto Surace.
