The Play That Goes Wrong


Come watch the amateur production of a murder mystery, staged by the Cornley University Drama Society. As the show unfolds, the actors endure one disaster after another. Props are misplaced, lines are forgotten, the set is falling apart, and the corpse cannot stay dead. Panicking thespians struggle mightily to reach the final curtain call. This fast-paced farce is pure fun! “ . . .one of those breakneck exercises in idiocy that make you laugh till you cry . . .” –The New York Times.

The Play That Goes Wrong is a 2012 play by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields of Mischief Theatre Company. It is published by Dramatists Play Service.

Show Dates: March 31-April 2, April 7-9, 2023
