'Goes Wrong' original cast reunites... for two weeks
Members of the original cast of The Play That Goes Wrong are reprising their roles for two weeks only as part of the production’s current UK tour.
The original cast visits Manchester's Opera House (May 30-June 4) and the Newcastle Theatre Royal (June 6-11).
It's 10 years since the group first met at drama school and created and performed their now worldwide hit knockabout comedy, about an amateur drama group beset with catastrophic stage disasters.
The original cast from the 2012 run – Rob Falconer (Trevor), Dave Hearn (Max), Henry Lewis Robert), Charlie Russell (Sandra), Jonathan Sayer (Dennis), Henry Shields (Chris), Greg Tannahill (Jonathan) and Nancy Zamit (Annie) – will be getting back together for the first time in five years.
The Play That Goes Wrong is currently on its fifth UK tour and its eighth year in the West End.
Actor, director and founder Jonathan Sayer said: “We’re so excited to be going back into The Play That Goes Wrong. It’s such a special show for us all; we can’t wait to make people laugh in two amazing cities!”
The award-winning international hit came about when a group of drama school graduates became friends, set up the Mischief theatre company and created a body of work that now includes several other Goes Wrong comedies.
*The full original cast will not perform at all shows. Charlie Russell performs only at Monday, Friday and Saturday evening performances; Henry Shields will not perform at the June 9 matinee, and Nancy Zamit will be absent from the June 3 evening show.
