Black Comedy – A One-Act Farce
by Peter Shaffer. Directed by Jason Sharland
The lights go out and chaos and hilarity ensues.
Brindsley Miller and his fiancée Carol Melkett have “borrowed” the fancy furniture from neighbor Harold Gorringe’s flat in order to impress Carol’s father, Colonel Melkett. Brindsley, an artist, is afraid that the Colonel will not give up his daughter to a starving artist.
Things go awry when the lights go out, leaving Brindsley helpless as characters arrive, one by one. First is Brindsley’s elderly neighbor, Miss Furnival. Colonel Melkett, unimpressed by the blackout, arrives, and Brindsley’s worst nightmare comes true as Harold returns early, and Brindsley tries desperately to return the furniture without Harold noticing.
Run time: 70 minutes, no intermission. The bar will be serving drinks before and after the show. Join us for a fast-paced, fun evening!
