Welcome to Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society’s opening night of The Murder at Haversham Manor where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous. With an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead, and actors who trip over everything (including their lines), it’s sure to bring down the house! This Olivier Award-winning comedy is a hilarious hybrid of Monty Python and Sherlock Holmes, and has been dubbed “the funniest play Broadway has ever seen”.
Keeping up with the reception of our production of Clue last year, it was obvious to me that the Waterford Audience loves a good comedy!!! And prior to discovering The Play that Goes Wrong, I had a completely different play on the table—- but after reading the script, I could not resist. This play has been one of the more complicated plays we have done at Waterford, as actors have to learn the art of layered comedy—-being the joke, or telling the joke—as well as various forms of fight choreography. There are sword fights, kicks, falls, punches, and slaps that all need to be timed with precision. To say the actors are worn out at the end of the rehearsal is an understatement! I am so thankful this cast has embraced the ridiculousness of these characters, and have worked hard to perfect every single moment.
Comedy is all about timing—– and these actors have nailed it.
