What could go wrong?

The runaway comedy success that hails from the multi-award-winning Mischief Theatre, this Broadway and West End hit finally lands in San Franciso, ready to unravel as it kicks off the San Francisco Playhouse's 2024/25 season! Following the unlucky fortunes of an amateur dramatic society as they attempt to stage a murder mystery, this laugh-out-loud play is a madcap adventure that channels the zaniness of Monty Python with the intricacy of Sherlock Holmes. 

Now celebrating over a decade of going wrong on both sides of the Atlantic, don't miss your chance to enjoy this much anticipated West Coast staging, directed by SFP's own Susi Damilano.

What is the story?

Welcome to the opening night of 'The Murder at Haversham Manor' where students of the Cornley University Drama Society are attempting to stage this 1920s production. However, everything that can go wrong is and the opening night is quickly going from bad to disastrous. With an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can't play dead, and actors who trip over everything they struggle to get to their final curtain call.

What we thought

hilarious BRITISH Slapstick

Brilliantly BAD! And if London Bridge ever does fall down, the Mischief Theatre Company would be my first suspect!

The name of the producing theatre company says it all, Mischief Theatre. With nothing short of a miracle, The Murder at Haversham Manor his heading out on tour! Thankfully though it is merely a guise for the brilliant The Play That Goes Wrong!
