The Play That Goes Wrong

What could go wrong with a play entitled “The Play That Goes Wrong”? Plenty! Brilliantly hilarious, When Agatha Christie, Sherlock Holmes, and the legendary game of Clue meet up with Faulty Towers, we in the audience roar with laughter. This is the story about the performance of a murder mystery where everything on stage can and does go wrong.

The Play That Goes Wrong begins before the curtain has even been raised, as the audience are present while the “Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society” prepare to stage their new production – the 1920s murder mystery ‘Murder at Haversham Manor’. However the set is not yet complete and there is no time to finish it off…..the show must go on!

With a murder (and a moving corpse) established from the beginning, the murder mystery gets into full flow. However, the props start to disappear, actors go missing and the set begins to collapse around, and often on, the cast. Mayhem ensues, the acting gets worse, and the set becomes increasingly dangerous, but the company struggle on regardless. The question is whether any of the cast and crew will remain standing, or conscious, by the final curtain?!

A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol is the Broadway adaptation of Charles Dickens’ 1843 Christmas tale.

A Christmas Carol tells the story of the curmudgeonly Ebenezer Scrooge. A prosperous businessman, he believes that personal wealth and heartless financial tactics are much more valuable than the friendship, happiness, and comfort of those around him. He treats his employee, Bob Cratchit, and his family with the same disdain and coldness that he shows everyone else. Scrooge’s miserable nature comes to a crescendo during the Christmas period–“Bah! Humbug!” However, this Christmas, he is forced to come face to face with his selfish ways when he is confronted by three ghosts on Christmas Eve: the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present, and the Ghost of Christmas Future. In the course of one night, Scrooge is forced to recognize his faults and gains the chance to make amends. He greets the dawning Christmas morning with an unusually cheerful, “Happy Christmas” and finally reconnects with those that mean the most to him.
