The Play That Goes Wrong
The Mount Markham High School Drama Club will present their upcoming performance of "The Play That Goes Wrong" Friday, Dec. 9 and Saturday, Dec. 10. Both performances are at 7 p.m. in the High School Auditorium. Tickets can be purchased at the door and are $10 for adults, $5 for seniors and students and $25 for family. “Break a leg!” takes on a whole new meaning for a woefully misguided troupe of players at the Cornley University Society’s opening night performance of The Murder at Haversham Manor. An unconscious leading lady, a corpse who can’t play dead, a ruffled detective, and a word-mangling butler (among others) must battle against technical gaffes, forgotten lines, and sabotaging scenery in a quest to arrive all in one piece at the final curtain call. Part Monty Python, part Sherlock Holmes, all mayhem, this 1920s whodunit is disastrously delightful.
