Walter Zerlin Jr and David McGillivray wrote a series of plays about a fictional amateur troupe that massacred the classics one by one. Mischief Theatre comedy adapts one of these in The Play That Goes Wrong with fictional Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society performing a creaky murder mystery. It follows the ZerlinMcGillivray formula to several decimal places: scenery disintegrates, props are misplaced or flimsy, lighting cues are missed, lines are forgotten, and actors mug, showboat and try to upstage each other, with emphasis on extreme slapstick. Roslyn Packer Theatre, 22 Hickson Road, Walsh Bay. Today, 2pm and 8pm. Tickets: $99$199.90. Bookings: (02) 9250 1999 or online. Until May 21. Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo Two American marines and an Iraqi translator have their lives changed through an encounter with a sharp-minded tiger that prowls the war-torn streets of Baghdad. Old Fitz Theatre, 129 Dowling Street, Woolloomooloo. Tuesdays to Saturdays: 8.15pm. Sundays, 6.30pm. Tickets: $30$42. Bookings: (02) 9356 3848. Until May 6. Orb Sydney Dance Company presents Orb, a double bill of lunar mystery. The latest creation from Sydney Dance Company’s artistic director Rafael Bonachela is Ocho, featuring eight virtuosic dancers in combination with a hypnotic electronic score by composer Nick Wales. Ocho explores the infinite connections that exist between us all. The double bill is completed with Full Moon by Cheng Tsung-lung, the artistic director of Taiwan’s Cloud Gate 2 — the Sydney Dance Company’s first collaboration with a Taiwanese choreographer.
