A fictitious Cornley University Drama Society has received a substantial bequest and is putting on a performance of "The Murder at Haversham Manor," a 1920s murder mystery play. The script is written by the fictitious Susie H. K. Brideswell. During the performance--a play within a play--a plethora of disasters befall the cast, including doors sticking, props falling from the walls, and floors collapsing. Cast members are seen misplacing props, forgetting lines, etc.
