WE’RE ONLY GOING TO DO THIS… ONE. MORE. TIME!
Pieter Toerien presents, by unprecedented public demand, the final ‘Victory-Lap” Season of…
THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG!
This hilarious comedy returns to the Theatre on the Bay from 9 November – 1 December, 2018.
Directed by Alan Committie.
The crazy cast of eight features Daniel Janks, Nicole Franco, Sive Gubangxa, Louis Viljoen, Craig Jackson, Roberto Pombo and Russel Savadier and welcoming Anthony Coleman to the mad-house
…plus the industry’s bravest stage crew, all aiming to keep the curtain up no matter what happens on the custom-made R500 000.00 set.
The plot revolves around an accident prone and completely inept Drama Society who 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 breaks loose.
Everything that can possibly go wrong does, 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 Theatre On the 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!
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.
What the press have said:
“The Play That Goes Wrong is hilariously bonkers, but be warned, rather than just tickling your funny bone, you might actually be at risk of fracturing it.
Thank goodness for the armrests, probably the only thing that prevented certain audience members from actually rolling in the aisles. “ – What’s On In Jo’burg
“It’s all about good actors acting badly to make a good show. More than good – bloody brilliant.
Do yourself a favour and catch this one. Like me, you may be bowled over …” – Weekend Special
“I’d watch this lovely lunacy in again in an instant” – Daily Maverick
“The Play That Goes Wrong is an excellent example of how top-notch directing, acting, lighting, costuming, music and sets
can keep an audience laughing for two hours” – The Cape Times
