    When the accident prone, inept Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society receives an unexpected financial legacy, the amateur group decides to put the windfall to good use. But when they attempt to put on a complicated 1920’s murder mystery play, all hell lets loose. Everything that can possibly go wrong does so, to hilarious effect, and audiences find the resulting chaos so funny that the entire theatre ends up in complete, total, happy disarray, night after night.  So Camps Bay is sure to see people streaming out of the theatre grinning from ear to ear and wiping their eyes!

    Will the players manage to get everything sorted out before the final curtain rises? Come along and find out for yourself.

    … as long as you’re prepared to risk your composure, and don’t mind completely losing your cool as the relentless funny stuff takes its toll, it’s wholly brilliant!

    Excellent comedy timing, expert verbal and physical funnies, it’s one of the best comedies to hit the stage for some time.  If you fall about laughing at Basil Fawlty’s antics in Fawlty Towers and loved the backstage shenanigans of Noises Off, you’ll adore this smash hit of a comedy play.

    Tickets:  R100 per person for the group booking, otherwise R??? for a non-discounted ticket if you are not part of the group booking.  Group booking to be finalised by Friday, 17 March 2017, to pay over on Monday, 20 March 2017.  

    EFT:  Please EFT to me before then if you want to go this route.  No cash deposits, please.  Use 'Wrong' as reference and I will find it on the bank statement.  Please ask for banking details if you do not have it yet.

    Socialising:  Let's do a coffee/dinner if there is enough interest for after the show!

    Confirmation details:  Will be sent the Thursday evening before the meetup.  My number, what time to meet and where as a recap of info on this page will be included.

    Listen, if this show is half as good as the preview, I'm going to hose myself. It think this is going to be absolutely awesome. I can't wait for this.

      I agree, Ralph! The admin manager of the theatre told me it is an expensive set they have which means visually we will be in for a treat as well which will definitely add to the comic relief! :D
