Funny to a point. Some of the bits wouldnt end. The build up to the end could have ended sooner. Two acts? It could have been done in one. Entertaining. To be honest, they tried too hard. Kudos to the actors having to work so hard.

5.0 star rating Sue Rosenberg from Richmond, Virginia


When “Trevor” (lighting and sound director) appeared by our seats before the play began and asked if we’d seen a missing dog, we knew we were in for an interesting evening. Hilarious from beginning to end!!! Perhaps not for everyone, but it delighted me and the rest of my family members. The creative set and over-the-top characters kept us looking forward to the next disaster. Go see it Richmonders!

Looking at many of the reviews, I find it hard to imagine that they saw the same play as I. After having seen this in NYC, I jumped at a chance to see it again in Charlotte. Interestingly, there were some tweaks to story line that added a bit more depth to the NYC version. This is hilarious. It is not Monty Python or the Three Stooges, it is something all its own. The audience, ranging in age from 8 to 80, cackled and laughed for more than two hours. The timing was crisp and the gags were well played, even if some were predictable. Knowing what might happen made it funnier when carried out. There was non-stop comedy action and twists and turns that the actors carried out flawlessly. Often, the funniest parts were the reactions of the cast members when things did go wrong. The interaction with the audience was spot on with hilarious references to local issues and topics as well as a poke at the Charlotte ego. I wish I could go again, but, alas, the holidays call.

12/10/19 At Kravis, West Palm Beach FL. Python's situational and physical humor is light years ahead of this play. TPTGW has slapstick and shtick that some high school drama group decided was funny. Audience laughed nervously hoping that the play would get better; it Never did so they stopped laughing. Actors shouted their lines; trying to "sell" it. The audience began to leave halfway through the first act; many more left at intermission and couldn't leave fast enough. At least one third of the theater left because this play was so bad. This play should have been staged in one of Kravis' smaller non- subscription secondary theaters. It should NOT have been part of the series which many bought in order to get the Hamilton tickets included in this season. We have had Kravis season tickets for four years. This play has me questioning whether I should switch to Broward, which has all of the same shows- except this one. This was a waste of precious time and money. Don't waste yours

You missed the best part of the play.....yes, it was corny, yes, it was over acted, but that's what made it funny.....the second act tied it all together. Its was a murder mystery play, they were acting, by the second act you put everything together and saw the humor! We loved it and if you liked Monty Python you will like it too.

What we thought

hilarious BRITISH Slapstick

Brilliantly BAD! And if London Bridge ever does fall down, the Mischief Theatre Company would be my first suspect!

The name of the producing theatre company says it all, Mischief Theatre. With nothing short of a miracle, The Murder at Haversham Manor his heading out on tour! Thankfully though it is merely a guise for the brilliant The Play That Goes Wrong!
