The Play That Goes Wrong at the Duchess Theatre

This debut play by Mischief Theatre is a delightful and entertaining portrayal of the challenges of putting on a show. As a group of actors prepares for their annual murder mystery, they discover that their set, props, and even some of the actors are missing. Despite these setbacks, the show must go on, and the audience is taken on a hilarious ride to see how the actors improvise and overcome these obstacles.

This play has earned Mischief Theatre an Olivier Award for Best Comedy Play and put them on the map. While they have since performed other plays such as The Comedy About a Bank Robbery and Groan Ups, this original play remains a standout. Buy The Play That Goes Wrong Tickets on The West End Shows.

The Mousetrap at the St Martin’s Theatre

A masterclass in murder mystery and suspense, The Mousetrap really is British theatre at its finest. The Agatha Christie play sees a group of hotel guests shocked to discover a killer is in their midst. Suddenly investigated by police, will you be able to work out who committed the crime? Since The Mousetrap first opened at the Ambassadors Theatre in 1952, its open-ended run has continually broken records, so much so that it’s now the longest-running play of all time. With The Mousetrap actors, creatives and audiences locking their mouths shut, the only way to learn the culprit’s identity is to see the show live. Book The Mousetrap tickets on The West End Shows.
