Comedy on Steroids
Directed by the Comedian who`s always high on laughs, ALAN COMMITTIE.When the accident prone, inept Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society receives an unexpected financial legacy, the amateur group decides to put the windfall to good use. But when they attempt to put on a complicated 1920s murder mystery play, all hell lets loose. Everything that can possibly go wrong does so, to hilarious effect, and audiences find the resulting chaos so funny that the entire theatre ends up in complete, total, happy disarray, night after night. So Camps Bay is sure to see people streaming out of the theatre grinning from ear to ear and wiping their eyes! Will the players manage to get everything sorted out before the final curtain rises? Come along and find out for yourself. ... as long as you`re prepared to risk your composure, and don`t mind completely losing your cool as the relentless funny stuff takes its toll, it`s wholly brilliant! Excellent comedy timing, expert verbal and physical funnies, it`s one of the best comedies to hit the stage for some time.
If you fall about laughing at Basil Fawlty`s antics in Fawlty Towers and loved the backstage shenanigans of Noises Off, you`ll adore this smash hit of a comedy play.
The Play That Goes Wrong theatre tickets - marvellously, ridiculously funny.
