The Play That Goes Wrong
Thursday, October 7

    We’re on our way to the Old Log Theater after lunch on your own at Maynard’s for The Play That Goes Wrong. What would happen if you mixed Sherlock Holmes and Monty Python? You’d get New York and London’s award-winning smash comedy! Called “the funniest play Broadway has ever seen” (The Huffington Post) and "A Gut-Busting Hit!” (The New York Times), this classic murder mystery is chock-full of mishaps and madcap mania. Welcome to opening night of The Murder at Haversham Manor, where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous. With an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead, and actors who trip over everything (including their lines), it’s sure to bring down the house.
