Mord auf Schloss Haversham
The Play That Goes Wrong
By Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer & Henry Shields
Performed in German, in a version by Martin Riemann
"The Play That Goes Wrong" has been running without interruption in London since its world premiere in 2012. The title of this fast-paced comedy provides a glimpse of what is to come: in a play within a play similar to "The Mousetrap", a plethora of disasters befall the cast, including actors forgetting their lines, misplacing props, missing cues, breaking character and trying their best to avoid being struck down by wobbly stage sets – all while attempting to solve a murder at Haversham Manor.
The play won Best New Comedy at the 2015 Laurence Olivier Awards and has undertaken numerous UK tours. Clearly, something must have gone right in the end!
