Never laughed so hard. This slap-stick comedy kept me in stitches from start to finish. It's so well done and the acting is superb. Highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys good old fashioned slap-stick. Lots of cool places to have dinner before the show...all...More

Hilarious show. We didn’t stop laughing and the preview of the forthcoming show ‘Magic Goes Wrong’ also looks very funny. Our 10 year old really enjoyed it but was possibly still a little young to fully appreciate the humour.

Loved The Play that Gies Wrong very funny and brilliant acting. However we were in the circle and the smell of old carpets and dust made me sneeze all evening. Especially bad on the stairs to the ladies toilets. Probably needs a good vacuum at...More

We booked tickets to go see ‘The play that goes wrong’. First we bumped into someone from our theatre at home working front of house. We were shown to our seats (K1 & 2) better leg room than other theatres, with only a slightly restricted...More

There is a searchline outside the theatre before the show, which can cause a hold-up, so arrive early.
