About
Winner of London’s 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 leadinglady with a concussion, and a corpse that can’t play dead. It’s a classic murder mystery… and it’s a mystery how it ever got to Broadway!

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. It's being brought to Broadway by the producer of Avenue Q and Something Rotten! along with acclaimed film writer/director/producer J.J. Abrams (“Lost,” Star Wars: The Force Awakens), who we can only assume lost a bet.
