Full description
The Play That Goes Wrong begins before the curtain has even been raised, as the audience witnesses the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society preparing to stage their annual production – which this year happens to be a 1920s murder mystery 'Murder at Haversham Manor'.

With a murder having been committed in a country house isolated by a fierce snowstorm, there are multiple suspects and an Inspector hell-bent on solving the crime – the perfect ingredients for a complex thriller. As props start to disappear, actors go missing and the set begins to fall down around the cast, mayhem ensues, but the amateur thespians struggle on against all the odds. But will they ever make the final curtain? And at what cost?
