“A riotous explosion of comedy.” The Daily Beast
Tulsa Community College Theatre Department presents the hilarious comedy, “The Play That Goes Wrong”written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields. The performance dates are Nov. 16-18 at 8 p.m. and Nov. 19 at 2 p.m. at the PACE Studio Theatre at the Southeast Campus.
An Olivier Award-winning comedy, “The Play That Goes Wrong” begins before the curtain has even been raised, as the audience are present while the Cornley Drama Society prepare to stage its 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 struggles on regardless. The question is whether any of the cast and crew will remain standing, or conscious, by the final curtain.
