THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG Returns to Pieter Toerien's Montecasino Theatre in South Africa for Encore Season
Famed local South African producer Pieter Toerien, whose Montecasino Theatre in Johannesburg, South Africa, will host an encore season of THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG, calls this theatre piece 'the funniest play (he has) ever seen!" Directed by Alan Committie, the South African production took the box office by storm in March and April this year and now returns for a four week season from 22 September.
THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG is a celebration of the best - and the worst - of live theatre. The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society is 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.
Described by theatre audiences as "FAWLTY TOWERS meets NOISES OFF," this hit comedy has won every major award on the London stage, including the 2015 Olivier Award Winner for Best New Comedy, the 2015 BroadwayWorld UK Winner for Best New Play and the 2014 WhatsOnStage Award Winner for Best New Comedy.
The return season features hilarious original cast members Russel Savadier, Craig Jackson, Roberto Pombo, Nicole Franco and Sive Gubangxa alongside three new cast members joining the team, namely Daniel Janks, Richard Lothian and Stephen Jubber.
THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG is guaranteed to leave you aching with laughter and runs through 15 October. Performances take place from Wednesdays to Saturdays at 20:00, with matinees on Saturdays at 17:00 and Sundays at 15:00. Tickets cost R100 - R200 and are available through Computicket.
