Play On!

Presented by The Phipps Center for the Arts at The Phipps Center for the Arts

The hilarious story of a theater group desperately trying to put on a play despite maddening interference from the haughty playwright, who also keeps revising the script. Anything that can go wrong does.

The Plot

One plucky community theatre is about to produce a show called Murder Most Foul: a new “murder mystery play” with the same title as an Agatha Christie novel but with no relation whatsoever. The director/theatre manager, Gerry, thought producing the play was a good idea since the inexperienced playwright has agreed to let the company perform the show for no charge.

Gerry, however, had no idea what disasters awaited her: the show is hilariously amateur, the “murder mystery” plot doesn’t really have a murder, and to top it off the playwright keeps changing the story and script only two days from its premiere! It doesn’t help that the cast is disgruntled and the playwright accidentally deletes the entire sound effect board. All of the disasters come to fruition in Act III when the company performs the actual show with hilarious mishaps as every turn.
