“Hilarious! Nonstop pandemonium”—Entertainment Weekly

What would happen if Sherlock Holmes and Monty Python had an illegitimate Broadway baby? You’d get Broadway and London’s award-winning smash comedy! Called “a gut-busting hit” (The New York Times) and “the funniest play Broadway has ever seen” (The Huffington Post), this classic murder mystery is chock-full of mishaps and madcap mania delivering “a riotous explosion of comedy" (Daily Beast). Welcome to 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 “tons of fun for all ages" (The Huffington Post) and “comic gold” (Variety) sure to bring down the house.

Recommended for age 8 and up.

Performance Timing: Approximately 2 hours, including one intermission.
