Burroughs to Present ‘The Play That Goes Wrong’

John Burroughs High School is preparing residents for a “night of laughter and mayhem” as it presents its spring play, “The Play That Goes Wrong,” a comedy murder mystery.

Directed by Elizabeth Meberg, the comedy will hit the stage on May 3 and 4 at 7 p.m., with an additional matinee performance on May 5 at 2 p.m.

“Renowned for its award-winning drama program, John Burroughs is set to dazzle audiences with this side-splitting production. Brace yourselves for an unforgettable evening as the Cornley Drama Society’s latest venture, ‘The Murder at Haversham Manor’ unfolds with chaotic hilarity,” said JBHS Digital Marketing Manager Tobie Siems.

In this thrilling 1920s whodunit, nothing is as it seems. Falling props, collapsing scenery, an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead, and actors tripping over everything, including their lines — this show has it all. As mishaps pile upon mischief and madcap mania ensues, the eager ensemble must battle against all odds to reach the final curtain call.

Meberg, the creative force behind the production, expressed her excitement.

“It’s been an absolute joy working with this talented group of students. They’ve embraced the chaotic charm of, ‘The Play That Goes Wrong’ with enthusiasm and dedication, and I have no doubt that audiences will be thoroughly entertained,” Meberg said.

Tickets for “The Play That Goes Wrong” are now available for purchase at jbhsdrama.com. The show will take place in the John Burroughs Auditorium at 1920 Clark Ave.
