An amateur dramatic society performs a series of half-hour plays for television, all of which go terribly wrong. From the creators of The Play That Goes Wrong.
The Pilot (not the Pilot)
Our amateur dramatists stage a WW2 drama, rarely performed because of its historical inaccuracy, that’s bedeviled by collapsing sets, a missing actor, and machines with minds of their own.
A Trial to Watch
A legal drama is to be performed this week, but a set-design problem baffles the stage crew. Throw in a nervous first-time actor, and it’s a recipe for theatrical disaster.
A horror story, set in a crumbling old house, becomes a horror show as the play runs short and the actors end up falling off, out of, and through the rickety set.
A period romance this week—hindered by a ceiling fan that threatens decapitation and a rain effect that might flood the entire set. There’s also a horse. And a cat.
A family saga of lust and betrayal set in the hot Deep South gets a trial by fire when it’s ruined by a set. To fix the problem, life and limb are put at risk and gravity is ignored.
