Wego Drama at West Chicago Community High School continues their 2022-23 season with "The One-Act Play That Goes Wrong."

Based on the work of the Mischief Theatre, it follows the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society who have come from Great Britain to present "The Murder at Haversham Manor." During the show, somethings go terribly wrong. Can they get through the show? Discover the answer by seeing this frenetic production.

It is the perfect continuation of the Wego Drama season theme of "Discover Who You Are." Can something so wrong, be so right? Yes, yes it can.
