13 October 2023 • Arts HWS Theatre Presents “The One-Act Play That Goes Wrong”

Associate Professor of Theatre Chris Hatch will direct HWS Theatre’s season debut during Homecoming and Family Weekend.

Get ready for laughter and a spin on your typical murder-mystery during Homecoming and Family Weekend, with HWS Theatre’s performance of The One-Act Play That Goes Wrong. Written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, the 70-minute show will run Thursday and Friday, Oct. 26-27 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, Oct. 28 at 2 p.m. and again at 7:30 p.m.

The performance is directed by Associate Professor of Theatre Chris Hatch, who says this year’s actors are bringing the play’s comedic elements to life.

“Our students are doing a great job embracing the challenges of doing the over-the-top comedic style,” Hatch says. It's going to be a perfect way to see some fun theater during Homecoming and because it is short, people will still have plenty of time to attend the other great events happening on campus.”

The cast and crew include Michael Andrews ’24, Hannah Angelico ’25, Anna Barry ’27, Kalila Caringal ’27, Thomas Fahey ’27, Kerby Gillis ’25, Johanna Grejda ’26, Hope Guzman ’24, Willow Lewis-Moskowitz ’27 and Gabriela Nieves ’23.

Tickets for all HWS Theatre productions are free (donations accepted) and should be reserved in advance through www.hws.edu/HWSTheatreBoxOffice.
