Fun and funny: ‘The Play That Goes Wrong’ strives to get it right at Grandstreet

Comedian Steve Martin said: “Chaos in the midst of chaos isn’t funny, but chaos in the midst of order is.”

In Grandstreet Theatre’s newest production, the actors hilariously demonstrate that when the attempt to maintain order fails, chaos and comedy abound.

Directed by John Rausch, “The Play That Goes Wrong,” delivers an “Agatha Christie-esque” play within a play featuring a cascade of chaotic disasters. The play opens on April 19 at Grandstreet Theatre and runs through May 5.
