Guest Artist and Broadway Star Eric Petersen is Back for The Play That Goes Wrong


We are so excited to kick off our 2024 season with the critically acclaimed farce THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG for ONE WEEK ONLY! Get ready to laugh until you cry at this Tony Award-winning production that promises an evening of uproarious entertainment. This side-splitting comedy was created by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields of the Mischief Theatre Company. 

This production features the talented cast of Guest Artist and Broadway Star Eric Petersen as Chris, Barn favorites Patrick Hunter as Robert, Melissa Cotton Hunter as Sandra, Luke Ragotzy as Max, John Jay Espino as Dennis, and Charlie King as Trevor.

THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG is a masterclass in physical comedy and timing. The story follows the ill-fated attempts of the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society to put on a 1920s murder mystery play, THE MURDER AT HAVERSHAM MANOR. As the title suggests, everything that can go wrong does go wrong, from missing props and faulty set pieces to forgotten lines and hilarious mishaps. The result is a riotous performance that leaves audiences in stitches.

Since its debut, THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG has won numerous awards, including the 2015 Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy and the 2017 Tony Award for Best Scenic Design. Its universal appeal and relentless humor have made it a must-see for theater lovers everywhere.
