The Play May Be Wrong, But The Casting Is Right!

When it comes to slapstick, it takes talent to make a scene go right. But it takes twice as much talent to make a show go wrong. And the stage will be full of talent with an impressive line-up of Australian performers for the highly anticipated The Play That Goes Wrong which begins its national tour early next year.


The Play That Goes Wrong introduces the ‘Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society’ who are attempting to put on a 1920s murder mystery. But as the title suggests, the play doesn’t go entirely as expected. These accident-prone thespians must do everything in their power to battle on against all odds and get to the final curtain call.

Leading the Australian premiere of this acclaimed West End production is Brooke Satchwell who rose to fame starting her television career on Neighbours, winning a Logie Award for Best Newcomer and has recently starred in the Australian show Wonderland.

Joining Brooke will be Darcy Brown (Peddling) as Jonathan, Francine Cain (Rock of Ages, Grease, Xanadu) as the Understudy, Adam Dunn as Trevor, Luke Joslin as Robert, George Kemp (The Bull for The Old Fitz) as Dennis, Jordan Prosser as the Understudy, Nick Sampson-Deeks (Company, Winners & Losers) as Chris and Tammy Weller (Single Admissions) as Annie.

The Australian cast will also be joined by James Marlowe playing Max, who was part of the original West End cast for The Play That Goes Wrong and appeared in Mischief Theatre’s sequel Peter Pan Goes Wrong during its UK tour.

The Play That Goes Wrong will begin its national tour in Melbourne on February 22 at the Comedy Theatre before follow up seasons in Adelaide’s Her Majesty’s Theatre from March 28, Sydney’s Roslyn Packer Theatre from April 5, Canberra’s Civic Theatre from April 26, Brisbane’s QPAC Concert Hall from May 4 and Perth’s His Majesty’s Theatre from May 31.
