A masterclass in how to break the fourth wall and bring the house down, and the entire theatre. πŸ˜‚πŸ”¨

It’s been 9 months since I first saw a Mischief Theatre production, the incredibly funny Magic Goes Wrong and after the joke of a week we’ve had (sizzling in 40 degrees heat) I’m definitely ready for a joke I can laugh at without bursting into flames.

So lets go πŸ‘‡πŸ»

The Play That Goes Wrong

It’s Monday night and I’ve completed my strut up the theatre concourse and I’m standing in my usual spot at The Piano Bar, sipping orange juice and trying to flick through the programme without them both ending up on the floor (not enough hands to theatre, anyone else relate!? πŸ˜‚) – when I hear a noise..?

No, not a noise. Raised voices. In the theatre? That’s unusual. So all ears are peaked looking for the culprit. πŸ‘€πŸ‘‚πŸΌ

And there he was, looking for a dog.

And there she was, panicking that the press had come to watch the play.

And then there he was too, trying to smooth things over. πŸ˜‚

We escaped the raucous in the foyer, found our seats in the auditorium to even more mishaps a-happening around us, above us and on stage.

The Play That Goes Wrong is not a laugh a minute. It’s a laugh a millisecond. I found myself desperately trying not to implode so I didn’t miss the next slick and perfectly timed joke or near-death theatrical *boom*.

Highly recommend for a the best side-splitting night out this week in Milton Keynes. Catch it (and the dog if you see it, whilst you can!).

The Play That Goes Wrong is at Milton Keynes Theatre Monday 25 – Saturday 30 July 2022

Tickets were kindly gifted by Milton Keynes Theatre but they have zero control over what I post, or say about the performance – that’s all me! Thank you for your support. πŸ–€
