This hilarious mash-up of Monty Python, mystery, and door-slamming farces raises the curtain on the opening night of the newest production by Cornley University Drama Society, The Murder at Haversham Manor, where things are quickly going from bad to very, very wrong. Their 1920s whodunit has everything you never wanted on stage including an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead, and actors who trip over everything (including their lines). Still, the accident-prone thespians bravely battle the odds to make it through to their final curtain call with hilarious consequences!
“After three years of waiting and working through and around COVID, we could all use a laugh,” says Artistic Director Randall King. “We are excited to kick off our 40th anniversary season, with the Bay Area premiere of this laugh-a-minute production.”
Director Jon Tracy is “in awe of the creative team working tirelessly to bring this raucous, ridiculous, slapstick comedy to life. We have a brilliant cast of eight, assembled from the truly exceptional Bay Area talent pool, and I cannot wait for audiences to see this fast-paced celebration of theatre.”
