The Play That Goes Wrong

The Play That Goes Wrong

By Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields

May 24 – June 16, 2024

Previews May 22 and 23

It’s Opening Night at the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society’s newest production, The Murder at Haversham Manor and the stakes have never been higher.  But none of the on-stage drama is in the script! The theater is filled with accident-prone actors, a corpse that can’t play dead to save his life, and a knocked-out knock out of a leading lady. When all goes wrong, can this theater company make it to Opening Night and bring down the house (in a good way)? In this fantastic, farcical, fiasco of a show and Off-Broadway and West End comedic hit, the age-old adage is true: “the show must go wrong!” oops sorry, we mean “the show must go on!”
