The Play That Goes Wrong at Quannapowitt Players

Quannapowitt Players Presents the Tony Award-winning comedy “The Play That Goes Wrong” by Henry Lewis, Henry Shields, and Jonathan Sayer, October 6-22!

Welcome to opening night of the Cornley University Drama Society’s newest production, The Murder at Haversham Manor, where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous. This 1920s whodunit has everything you never wanted in a show—an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead, and actors who trip over everything (including their lines). Nevertheless, the accident-prone thespians battle against all odds to make it through to their final curtain call, with hilarious consequences! Part Monty Python, part Sherlock Holmes, this Olivier Award–winning comedy is a global phenomenon that’s guaranteed to leave you aching with laughter!

Directed by David Fisher and featuring Ashley Risteen, Richie DeJesus, Angela Courtney Rossi, Adam Heroux, Cari Keebaugh, Craig Ciampa, Katie Pompeo, and Shayne Doherty, “The Play That Goes Wrong” will open on Friday, October 6, and run through October 22. 

Kicking off the start of the 2023-24 season with The Play That Goes Wrong, the Quannapowitt Players, the company in the “little red schoolhouse,” celebrates 86 years of community theater in Reading!
