The Play That Goes Wrong By Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields

May 24 - June 16, 2024

It’s Opening Night at the Cornley 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!”

Run Time: 2 hours (including intermission)

Content Advisory: Production contains simulated gunshots and occasional flashing lights. Contact the Box Office for more information.

Missed out? We have a waiting list and standing room tickets available each night! Come down to the theater 1 hour before the show and we will do our best to get you in. Contact the Box Office for more information.
