Glenbard West Theatre to put on ‘The Play That Goes Wrong’

Glenbard West Theatre will present “The Play That Goes Wrong” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday to Saturday, Feb. 1-3, at Glenbard West High School, 670 Crescent Blvd. in Glen Ellyn.

It’s opening night at the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society’s newest production, “The Murder at Haversham Manor,” and the stakes have never been higher. But none of the on-stage drama is in the script. The theater is filled with accident-prone actors, a corpse that can’t play dead to save his life, and a knocked-out leading lady. When all goes wrong, can this theater company make it to opening night and bring down the house (in a good way)?

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door or at
