Brindsley & his fiancée took furniture from Harold’s flat to impress her father. Things go awry as the lights go out

Black Comedy is a one-act play and was first performed in 1965. The play is, suitably enough, a black comedy in which the effect loss of light would have on a group of people who all hold things from each other is explored. It's a farce set in a London flat during an electrical blackout, and is written to be staged under a reversed lighting scheme: that is, the play opens with a dinner party beginning on a darkened stage, then a few minutes into the show "a fuse blows", the stage lights come up, and the characters are seen shambling around apparently invisible to one another.

$19 General Admission; $14 for seniors over 65; and $9 juniors under 25.
