About the show

After a 2-year run on Broadway, the 2015 Olivier Award winner for Best New Comedy moves Off-Broadway. Welcome to the absolutely disastrous opening night of 'The Murder at Haversham Manor.' More…

This 1920s whodunit has everything you never wanted in a Broadway show: a ramshackle set, a leading lady with a concussion, and a corpse that can't play dead. Direct from its hit London run, 'The Play That Goes Wrong' is a celebration of the best of live theater…and the worst.
