The San Jose Stage Company has revealed first look photos for The Play That Goes Wrong, which will running through December 17, 2023. (490 South 1st Street, San Jose, CA, 95113). 
Multi-award-winning hit comedy The Play That Goes Wrong is a hilarious mash-up of Monty Python, mystery, and door-slamming farces raises the curtain on the opening night of the newest production by Cornley University Drama Society, The Murder at Haversham Manor, where things are quickly going from bad to very, very wrong. Their 1920s whodunit has everything you never wanted on stage including an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead, and actors who trip over everything (including their lines). Still, the accident-prone thespians bravely battle the odds to make it through to their final curtain call with hilarious consequences!
