The play that goes wrong

About

Awarded the 2014 WhatsOnStage Award for Best New Comedy, 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy and a Tony Award for the Broadway transfer, The Play That Goes Wrong is enjoying its sixth year in the West End and continues to delight audiences across the UK and around the world.

The play features the (fictional) Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society who are putting on a 1920s murder mystery, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong … does! As the accident prone thesps battle against all the odds to reach their final curtain call, hilarious results ensue!

Running time 2 hours 5 mins including interval

 

Eastbourne Theatres – Your Safety

In line with government guidelines we’re taking the following precautions to ensure safety for our visitors and staff during your visit:

Face coverings are mandatory for those ages 11+ years and must be worn for the duration of your visit, unless eating or drinking or visitor is exempt. Our staff will also be wearing masks.

Please use the hand sanitising stations that are provided.

We are operating with a significantly reduced seating capacity to give plenty of space for physical distancing. The maximum group that can be seated together will be 6 people. Seats that are not available to sit in will be clearly marked and you will be required to stay in the seat you have purchased. Seats around you and your group will be blocked off at the time of booking.

One way systems will be in place as necessary and a specified auditorium entrance will be stated on your ticket to enable everyone to stay a safe distance apart.

Extensive cleaning including the auditorium, toilets and high-touch points will be undertaken after every show.

There will be no overlap of entry and exit times for audiences in between shows.

Card payment for any ticket, food or drink purchase is preferred.

NHS Track and Trace details will be collected on booking.
