Warwick High School Presents, 'The Play That Goes Wrong'

Warwick High School Presents, The Play That Goes Wrong (High School Edition), By Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, & Henry Shields - Dramatists Play Service Inc.

Join us Friday, November 10th (7:00 pm), Saturday, November 11th (7:00 pm), or Sunday, November 12th (2:00 pm) for the show. Tickets are $7.00 for students and senior citizens, and $9.00 for general audience. The box office will open one hour prior to show time to purchase tickets early.


This Olivier Award-winning comedy show will leave you reeling with laughter. The show depicts the opening night of the Cornely Drama Society’s newest production, The Murder at Haversham Manor, where anything that can go wrong in a theatre production does. Set as a 1920s whodunit, the audience will enjoy comical stage blunders such as a corpse that can’t play dead, actors tripping over both their lines and stage props, and so much more. 

“Performing in The Play that Goes Wrong is an exhilarating experience where someone is encouraged to make mistakes. It makes way for a lot of laughs, for both rehearsals and the show. It is very fun to play with different ways to ‘ruin’ a show.” - Finn Cracroft, 9th Grade Student at Warwick High School.
