(Performance photos by Andy Sharp)
“Break a leg!” takes on a whole new meaning for a woefully misguided troupe of players at the Cornley University Society’s opening night performance of The Murder at Haversham Manor. An unconscious leading lady, a corpse who can’t play dead, a ruffled detective, and a word-mangling butler (among others) must battle against technical gaffes, forgotten lines, and sabotaging scenery in a quest to arrive all in one piece at the final curtain call. Part Monty Python, part Sherlock Holmes, all mayhem, this 1920s whodunit is disastrously delightful.
The production is directed by Ron Watson. Scenic design is by Justin Dam and Ron Watson. Lighting design is by Faith Castaneda and costume design is by Cynthia Overton. Fight choreography is by Tobie Minor, property design is by Haley May Nelson, and assistant property design by Housik Megerdichian. Barb Jernigan isscenic artist and sound design is by JD Anderson. Faith Castaneda is production stage manager and Becca Kehl is assistant stage manager.
THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG is Broadway & London’s award-winning smash comedy! Co-written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields and called “A GUT-BUSTING HIT” (The New York Times) and “THE FUNNIEST PLAY BROADWAY HAS EVER SEEN” (HuffPost), this classic murder mystery is chock-full of mishaps and madcap mania delivering “A RIOTOUS EXPLOSION OF COMEDY” (Daily Beast). It's “TONS OF FUN FOR ALL AGES” (HuffPost) and “COMIC GOLD” (Variety)–sure to bring down the house!
