Theatre-lovers are invited to the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society’s production of “The Murder at Haversham Manor,” via the Broadway and London hit comedy, “The Play That Goes Wrong.” It runs Dec. 6-21, 2019, at Pioneer Theatre Company. Tickets for this production can be purchased by calling 801-581-6961 or visiting pioneertheatre.org.
The New York Times called it the “Best Comedy Pick of the Season.” “The Play That Goes Wrong” also won the prestigious Olivier Award in London for Best New Comedy.
“I survey our audience members every season asking what plays they want to see,” said Artistic Director Karen Azenberg, who also directs this production. “Last year, over 90% of our responders requested this hilarious, fast-paced comedy. That is unheard of. We are fortunate to be one of the only theatres in the country granted the first rights to produce this piece.”
“Regional theatres like PTC heavily compete for the rights to productions like these,” said Managing Director Chris Massimine. “One of the reasons I joined this team is Karen Azenberg’s reputation for excellence in producing premieres that assure Salt Lake audiences will get a chance to see these productions here, first. It’s an important part of the community building work for which PTC is committed.”
