A

GUT-BUSTING

HIT! ”

December 19 & 20 8 pm

This Olivier Award-winning comedy is a hilarious hybrid of

Monty Python and Sherlock Holmes. 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 “A

RIOTOUS EXPLOSION OF COMEDY!” (The Daily Beast)

and “TONS OF FUN FOR ALL AGES!” (HuffPost). Ben

Brantley of The New York Times calls THE PLAY

THAT GOES WRONG “A GUT-BUSTING HIT,” and

Cindy Adams of the New York Post has just

one word for you: “GO!” Get tickets now —

it would be WRONG to wait!

TICKETS: $75, $60, $50


HILARIOUS!

PANDEMONIUM. ”
