Nominated for the Whatsonstage.com Award for Best New Comedy, the West End hit comedy The Play That Goes Wrong comes to the Chelmsford Civic Theatre in February.

And there’s a chance to win a pair of tickets to the opening night on February 17.

The Play That Goes Wrong exploded onto the stage with phenomenal success last year.

Co-written by Mischief Theatre company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields and directed by Mark Bell, it is a highly physical comedy packed with finely-tuned farce and Buster Keaton inspired slapstick delivered with split-second timing and ambitious daring.

The play introduces The ‘Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society’ who are attempting to put on a 1920s’ murder mystery, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong... does, as the accident prone thesps battle on against all the odds to get to their final curtain call.

To be in with a chance of winning tickets to see this hilarious comedy farce answer the following question:

What kind of films was Buster Keaton best known for?

A Silent movies

B Action movies

C Horror movies

Send your answer to myentry@archant.co.uk by 12noon on Wednesday, February 12. Please include your name, address and a daytime contact telephone number.

• The show runs from Monday, February 17 to Saturday, February 22, at 7.45pm, with a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm. Tickets are priced from £15-£24.50 and are available from the Box Office on 01245 606505 or online at chelmsford.gov.uk/theatres.
