The Play that Goes Wrong, Duchess Theatre - ★★★ - Until May 2, 2021


Anyone who has ever been associated with amateur theatricals has lived this experience. In fact, anyone involved in any volunteer activity can identify. The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society’s dilemmas will strike a chord with all who have tried to herd cats or get people to work together to a common goal. Yes, it is over the top, but for a silly, enjoyable and undemanding evening or afternoon in the theatre, this is a great choice. Sometimes watching the frazzled frustration and struggles of others is great for lifting the cloud of one’s own. In farce, timing is everything if some of the old familiar jokes are going to work ... they work here.
