Comedian Ed Byrne

The Play That Goes Wrong
Will things go according to plan? Probably not - but that's half the fun! Mischief’s multi award-winning comedy featuring the accident-prone Cornley Drama Society trying to put on a 1920s murder mystery, is directed by Sean Turner, who also is now artistic director of the nearby Trinity Theatre.
The show is recommended for ages eight and up. It's at the Assembly Hall Theatre in Tunbridge Wells from now until Sunday, October 24. To book click here.
