The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society is about to perform ‘The  Murder at Haversham Manor.’ They’ve rehearsed their lines, their  costumes fit, the stage is set, the props are in place – what can  possibly go wrong? As it turns out, just about everything! But as disaster after disaster strikes on stage, the show must go on. The actors will be glad just to make it alive to the final curtain, but this  hilarious award-winning farce will have you laughing long after the show is over.

Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields formed Mischief Theatre (a British theatre company) in 2008 with a group of students from The London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art. 

The company is best known for their performances as the fictional theatre company, The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society, in which they attempt several amateur performances that comedically go wrong. Significant work by the company includes the award-winning 2012 stage play The Play That Goes Wrong, and the BBC television series The Goes Wrong Show. Several of the stage performances by the company have been not only shown in the West End of London, but also in theatres across the United Kingdom, North America, and Europe.
