The Play that Goes Wrong
High School Edition
By Henry Lewis, Henry Shields, and Jonathan Sayer
From Mischief, Broadway masters of comedy, comes the smash hit farce. Welcome to opening night of the Cornley University 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! Part Monty Python, part Sherlock Holmes, this Olivier Award–winning comedy is a global phenomenon that’s guaranteed to leave you aching with laughter!

Love and Information
by Caryl Churchill
Someone can’t get a signal. Someone won’t answer the door. Someone put an elephant on the stairs. Someone’s not ready to talk. Someone hates irrational numbers. Someone told the police. Someone got a message from the traffic light. Someone doesn’t understand pain. Someone’s never felt like this before.
Love and Information is an insightful, poetic, and fast-paced play by award-winning British playwright Caryl Churchill.
In over fifty scenes, more than a hundred characters are confronted with the things they know, don’t know, want to know, or want to forget. We get a glimpse of their attempts to discover meaning in the moment. In an age of big data and splintered attention spans, Love and Information challenges us to understand what it means to be truly connected with each other.
by Rian Johnson, adapted by Chris White

He just wants to help her deal with ... whatever this is. And then she turns up dead. What's left to do? Get the straight, and break some deserving teeth.
