The Goes Wrong Show Christmas special coming to BBC One

The Goes Wrong Show will be back on BBC One this Christmas with a Nativity special.

The Goes Wrong Show is a comedy series from Mischief Theatre, the makers of The Play That Goes Wrong.

Each episode follows the Cornley Drama Society as they (attempt to) perform a number of half-hour playlets, ranging from horror to period romance, via legal drama and wartime thriller.

For their upcoming 2020 Christmas special, The Goes Wrong Show team present their take on the classic Nativity story.

A teaser reads: “As ever, all soon descends into chaos; an ingenious pop-up book set proves a physical danger to both cast and crew, the Angel Gabriel develops a firework obsession, the actors inside a donkey have a terrible falling out resulting in unnecessary nudity and there is much more fire than anyone anticipated.

“Oh, and the baby Jesus is eaten by a sheep. In between, the greatest story ever told is told.”

The one-off special was written by and stars the original founding Mischief Theatre members; Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields alongside Nancy Zamit, Charlie Russell, Bryony Corrigan, Greg Tannahill, Dave Hearn and Chris Leask.

The show will air on BBC One this Christmas on Tuesday 22 December at 7PM on BBC One.

The Goes Wrong Show will return to BBC One next year with a second series.
