“Mischief theatre has found a winning formula. Whatever visions of chaos your imagination summons, the odds are that this show’s artfully hapless team will exceed them.” 

- New York Times 


What would happen if Sherlock Holmes and Monty Python had an illegitimate Broadway baby? You’d get The Play That Goes Wrong, Broadway and London’s award-winning smash comedy! Called “a gut-busting hit” (The New York Times) and “the funniest play Broadway has ever seen” (Huffington Post), this classic murder mystery is chock-full of mishaps and madcap mania delivering “a riotous explosion of comedy” (Daily Beast). 

Welcome to opening night of “The Murder at Haversham Manor,” where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous. With an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead and actors who trip over everything (including their lines), it’s “tons of fun for all ages” (Huffington Post) and “comic gold” (Variety), sure to bring down the house!
