The Play That Goes Wrong- Trafalgar Studios

30 April 2013 - 11:22 PM

Just seen this tonight- it was hilarious. I am actually exhausted from laughing so much. It is on at the Trafalgar studios- formerly Whitehall theatre- home of the Brian Rix farces- and they have done him proud. Its a mixture of Noises Off and other Ayckbourn farces mixed in with a bit of Python, Austentatious the Musical and the reduced version of 39 steps.

Anyway- if you want a rib tickler in an intimate venue ( very up close and personal) this is for you. If you want to make a night of it I can recommend the soup and pudding deal for £6.10 down in the Cafe Crypt of St Martins nearby.

WOS have an offer on- see below

If for some reason you don't find it funny- which I seriously doubt- you will surely be infected with everyone else's laughter.
It brought back happy memories of real life theatre mishaps I have witnessed over the years. My personal favourite was when I was watching Romeo and Juliet and Romeo couldn't find his poison bottle!

Have fun.
