As the name suggests nothing is right about The Play That Goes Wrong but in a gleeful manner.

The comedy show thoroughly entertains the spectators when the Cornley Polytechnic Drama society aims to put on their annual show and amidst rehearsals for “Murder at Haversham Manor”, a 1920s murder mystery.

Written by fictitious playwright Susie H.K. Brideswell, The Murder at Haversham Manor quickly becomes a theatrical catastrophe. Audiences get a glimpse of backstage staff performing last-minute repairs on the set pieces, but fate has other plans in store for the ill-fated cast as a series of mishaps begin to unfold one by one.

From falling props, collapsing floors, and sticky doors to actors forgetting lines, stomping on fingers, breaking character, and getting stuck in a grandfather clock, you can bet you'll be in for a non-stop funny ride from start to finish.
