Broadway’s funniest smash hit!
This Olivier Award-winning comedy is a hilarious hybrid of Monty Python and Sherlock Holmes.
Welcome to opening night of the Cornley 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!
A classic farce chock-full of mishaps and madcap mania!
