The Play That Goes Wrong has been delighting audiences since its 2012 London debut. The farcical play-within-a-play follows the Cornley Drama Society’s production of “The Murder at Haversham Manor.” Despite their best efforts, the production rapidly goes from bad to utterly disastrous, with madcap mishaps—from an unconscious leading lady to a self-destructing set. Will the hapless actors make it to the final curtain call? Join us to find out!

Something new from one of America’s most produced and prolific playwrights … It is London, 1619. William Shakespeare is dead and his legacy depends on a circle of devoted writers, actors, and friends. When a botched and hilariously pirated production of Hamlet plays on a nearby stage, they realize the words of their friend and mentor—words that shaped their lives—are soon to be lost forever. This small group of unexpected heroes with no money, no resources, and no experience must come together to—against all odds and in a race against time—collect and compile Shakespeare’s plays into one definitive printed edition. Their translation of words from the stage to the page would forever change theater and literature. This unforgettable true story is a lively, funny, and poignant love letter to theater and to the printed word. Winner of the Harold and Mimi Steinberg/American Theatre Critics Association New Play Award 2018.

A farce from one of the masters of stage comedy, Funny Money will have you laughing all the way to the bank—or Barcelona. Accountant Henry Perkins is down the middle in every way, middle-class and middle-aged, and headed home for another middling birthday dinner with his wife and friends … until he picks up the wrong briefcase on the tube, one filled with a LOT of money. For once throwing caution to the wind, he decides to run away with his wife and the money. But a night of mix-ups, mistaken identities, and a miscreant named Mr. Big have other plans for Henry. Funny Money is a night of hilarious twists and turns that are anything but middle of the road.
