The multi award-winning West End smash hit comedy returns for another hilarious week, back by phenomenal demand after a sell-out run!

The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society are putting on a 1920s murder mystery, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong… does! As the accident prone thesps battle on against all the odds to reach their final curtain call, hilarious results ensue!

Hailed as ‘a gut-busting hit’ by the New York Times, Mischief Theatre’s sell-out West End comedy has won a host of celebrity endorsements, from the likes of Joanna Lumley (“We laughed until the tears ran down our faces, it has to be seen”) to Ant & Dec (“The funniest show we’ve seen! If you can get a ticket, go!”).

Don’t miss your second chance to see this brilliantly funny comedy that’s guaranteed to leave you aching with laughter!

Celebrate summer and pre-order a delicious Ploughman's Supper to enjoy before the show, inspired by your favourite picnic foods. Click here for more information.
