The Goes Wrong Show, Season 2 (DVD)
THE GOES WRONG SHOW Season 2 (DVD)
Once again, Cornley Drama Society return to the BBC with six shows performed live for the public to 'enjoy'. Sadly, they are as inept as ever, this time with the added complication of an internal feud that spills out into open, incompetent warfare.
They start with a Christmas Nativity, and when that fails in a cataclysm of illegal fireworks, move on to a Downton-esque family saga, a Shakespeare history play (Colin Shakespeare, that is) and a US-style prison break drama for their next three shambolic episodes, ending with two shows of short performances chosen by the individual cast: an acting disasterclass, a 70s sitcom in questionable taste, and a ballet forgotten for good reason provide the series with the conclusion it deserves. Sets fall down and, oddly, up, horses (real and pantomime) case havoc, and many, many things catch fire.
