This return marks 10 years since the play was originally performed. Mischief was founded in 2008 by a group of acting graduates from LAMDA it began as an improvised comedy group regularly performing at the Fringe venues. Shortly after graduating they came up with the idea for The Play That Goes Wrong, which was first performed at The Old Red Lion Pub Theatre in London, one of their first performances having an audience of just four people! Within 2 years, The Play That Goes Wrong transferred to the West End (currently in its 8th year at the Duchess Theatre), and has since gone on to play to an audience of over two million and been licensed to 30 countries worldwide, along with picking up an Olivier and Tony Award. They have presented further shows across the world including The Comedy About a Bank Robbery, Peter Pan Goes Wrong, Magic Goes Wrong and Groan Ups as well as recently a BBC series, The Goes Wrong Show - series 2 of which is available on iPlayer.
