The Play That Goes Wrong

Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through April 7

The Conley Polytechnic Drama Society, one of England's lesser-known community theater groups, has been bequeathed a large sum of money to produce a new play. The company decides on the 1920s murder-mystery The Murder at Haversack Manor mostly because it has parts enough for all the actors.

That's the fictitious background for The Play That Goes Wrong, which is actually a physically demanding comedy created by the Mischief Theatre Company, a very real performance troupe. As its title implies, the play within the play is a spectacular catastrophe before the curtain goes up. Props break, cues are missed and at least one actor is knocked unconscious, which starts a very public row about which cast member gets to play the part to the finale.

As you might imagine, making the play go wrong requires strenuous rehearsal and split-second timing from both the cast on stage and the cast back stage, the latter of whom are actors playing techs. Every role is demanding, because a mistake can result in very real injury — but when everybody hits their marks, you see a flawless, outrageously funny actor's nightmare unfold in real time. The Play that Goes Wrong closes out the Repertory Theatre St. Louis' current season. Performances take place Tuesday through Sunday (March 15 to April 7) at the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; www.repstl.org). Tickets are $19 to $92.

Nonsense and Beauty

Thursdays, Fridays, 8 p.m., Sundays, 2 & 7 p.m. and Saturdays, 4 & 8 p.m. Continues through March 23

English novelist E.M. Forster wrote six novels in his long life, each driven by his belief in the primacy of genuine human connection in a world divided by matters of class and social strictures. In Scott C. Sickles' new drama Nonsense and Beauty, Forster's own relationships take center stage. The play is inspired by Forster's long-term relationship with much-younger, married police officer Bob Buckingham. Forster introduced both Buckingham and his wife to his social circle, in the process embarking on a love triangle that endured four decades, from 1930 to Forster's death in 1970. The Repertory Theatre St. Louis presents the world premiere of Nonsense and Beauty Tuesday through Sunday (March 8 to 24) at the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; www.repstl.org). Tickets are $46 to $71. $46-$71

Asako I & II

March 22-24, 7:30 p.m.

Asako meets the dreamy Baku at a photography exhibition and is instantly smitten with the charismatic, devil-may-care young man. He reciprocates those feelings, or at least appears to do so. Asako's friends aren't so sure about her new boyfriend; some say he's a noted heartbreaker. But Asako is deeply infatuated. Who knows how Baku feels? One day he simply disappears, and Asako is left with nothing but memories and longing. A few years later, Asako spots Baku. But is it him? The man she meets is quieter, less exciting and says his name is Ryôhei, but she could swear it's her Baku. Director Ryūsuke Hamaguchi adapted Tomoka Shibaski's novel for the film Asako I & II, which flips the manic-pixie dreamgirl trope on its head. The Webster Film Series presents the strange romance at 7:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday (March 22 to 24) at Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 Edgar Road; www.webster.edu/film-series). Tickets are $5 to $7. Check out our full review in the film section. $5-$7

For their work in the Hunt Gallery, Palais des Beaux Arts Wien has scaled their website to the limits of the gallery's walls, treating the light from the browser as a sculptural material. Conceived of as an automated score, the sculpture cycles through a selection of newly commissioned artworks from the collection, lifestyle fragments, archival materials surrounding the family which founded the Palais des Beaux Arts Wien, as well as some of the administrative cul-de-sacs that the institution underwent while occupied by the Nazis. free
