Inspired by Mischief Theatre’s award-winning Broadway and West End stage production, The Play That Goes Wrong, The Goes Wrong Show television series is now available to stream online in Australia on Amazon Prime Video.
The Goes Wrong Show is written by and stars the original founding Mischief Theatre members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, alongside Nancy Zamit, Charlie Russell, Bryony Corrigan, Greg Tannahill, Dave Hearn and Chris Leask.
Every week, the well-meaning amateurs of the Cornley Dramatic Society perform a half-hour play – live in front of a studio audience: a horror story, a wartime drama, a legal thriller, a period romance, a deep south melodrama and a Christmas fable.
And every week, the performance goes terribly, terribly wrong. Sets collapse, special effects fail and actors forget their lines but the show must go on. The Goes Wrong Show is simply Mischief Theatre’s biggest disaster yet.
The Goes Wrong Show debuted in the UK to widespread acclaim and recently received a 2020 TV Choice Award nomination for Best Comedy.
The Mischief team also adapted both Peter Pan Goes Wrong for BBC One in December 2016 and created A Christmas Carol Goes Wrong starring Diana Rigg and Derek Jacobi, which aired on BBC One in December 2017.
“This stuff has to be directed and performed with pinpoint accuracy if it’s to succeed. Fortunately, it’s perfectly, deliberately, terrible.” – Financial Times
