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!

Duchess Theatre [West End]

“Amiably ridiculous. The cast’s physical skill is delightful and the production... builds to a delirious climax.”

Sarah Hemming (Financial Times)

“A fringe company plays an am dram company in a West End hall of mirrors to delightful effect”

The Stage (Other reviewers)

“Undiluted, unapologetic sketch theatre, very well done in its way...as though The Mousetrap has been taken over by Monty Python.”

Michael Coveney (What's on Stage, The Stage, Independent)

“[We've] seen it all...before, but doors that won’t open, missed cues and messed-up lines are somehow never not funny. ”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“It looks as physically exhausting to perform as it is exhausting to watch. Most seated around us roared hysterically throughout.”

West End Whingers

“A farcical play-within-a-play... The show sits in a fine tradition of British slapstick, and of plays about theatrical blunders.”

Time Out (Other reviewers)

“All punchline and no set-up...it soon goes from amusing to wearying with surprising speed.”

Dominic Maxwell (The Times)
