The Play That Goes Wrong introduces The Cornley University Drama Society, who attempt to put on a 1920s murder mystery, but everything that can go wrong does, as the accident-prone thespians battle on to get to their final curtain call.

The long-running comedy is co-written by Mischief company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields and is directed by Mark Bell, with set designs by Nigel Hook, costumes by Roberto Surace, lighting by Ric Mountjoy, original music by Rob Falconer, and sound design by Andy Johnson. The associate director is Amy Milburn, and the assistant director is Anna Marshall.

The Play That Goes Wrong opened at the Duchess Theatre in September 2014. The Broadway production played 27 previews and 737 regular performances at the Lyceum, winning the 2017 Tony Award for Best Scenic Design of a Play. The production subsequently reopened Off-Broadway at New World Stages, where it continues.

The Play That Goes Wrong is produced in the West End by Kenny Wax Ltd and Stage Presence Ltd.
