The Play That Goes Wrong Summary

The creators of The Play That Goes Wrong are thrilled to be selling tickets via…actually, they’re thrilled to be selling tickets at all!

Winner of the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, The Play That Goes Wrong is a celebration of the best of live theater… and the worst. Welcome to opening night of the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society’s newest production, The Murder at Haversham Manor. This 1920s whodunit has everything you never wanted in a Broadway show – a ramshackle set, a leading lady with a concussion, and a corpse that can’t play dead. It’s a classic mystery… and it’s a mystery how it ever got to Broadway!

Direct from a bafflingly successful run on London’s West End, this sidesplitting show-within-a-show will move you… from your house to the theater and back. Ben Brantley of The New York Times called it “A gut-busting hit!” and we only bribed him a little. If you thought One Man, Two Guvnors was the finest British comedy to ever cross the pond, The Play That Goes Wrong will prove you right. Don’t miss this strictly limited (though likely too long) engagement!
