Amazing TV adaptation of an even more amazing play
1 January 2017 | by zeljkohrvatskaSee all my reviews

I love and saw all three major plays by the Mischief Theatre several times. The Play That Goes Wrong, Peter Pan Goes Wrong and Comedy About the Bank Robbery and I love all of them. Saw all three with the original cast. Every time I'm in London I go and see one or more of their plays, which is what I plan to do this January, too (I'll go and see Petert Pan Goes Wrong). I was pleasantly surprised to see that BBC planned to show it on New Year's Eve and told all my friends. The TV version was almost all there, they obviously shortened it a bit. I especially missed the part in which the mother tries to turn off the lamps in the children's room, but also enjoyed the video additions which you don't see in the theatre (the joke on the lake and later going through the various BBC studios etc.) If this becomes available somewhere online, definitely watch it. It's hilarious.
