The comedy, Mistakes Were Made makes it's West Coast Premier being presented by Cygnet Theatre Company at the Old Town Theatre located in the heart of San Diego's State Historic Park.

San Diego favorite Phil Johnson stars as Felix Artifex, a fast-talking B-list producer who gets in over his head when he takes on an epic about the French Revolution. Egotistical movie stars, stubborn writers, his estranged wife and a mess involving sheep are no obstacles for Artie!
