Black Comedy

Written by Peter Shaffer

Return to London of the swinging 60's with this very funny farce first presented at the Barn over 20 years ago. Black Comedy opens on a dark stage (which is light to the actors) and blows a fuse throwing them into the dark (light to the audience). Some things we see in the "dark": A girl bringing her wealthy father to meet her fiancée, a sculptor who in trying to make a good impression has invited a wealthy art patron and stolen the neighbor's furniture. But in the "dark" things get a little wild and hilarity ensues. Wicked fun from the playwright who brought you Equus.
