If you’ve ever dreamed of seeing “Downton Abbey” taken over by Monty Python, then you have some very strange dreams. AND, you’ll love THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG, the Olivier Award-winning comedy direct from London’s West End. 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 leading lady 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!

This sidesplitting show-within-a-show is presented by the producer of Avenue Q and Something Rotten! along with acclaimed film producer J.J. Abrams (“Lost,” Star Wars: The Force Awakens), who we can only assume lost a bet. Get tickets now — missing it would be a total catastrophe!
