Black Comedy

By Peter Shaffer

February 16-25, 2018 * Please note that all performances are currently sold out*

Directed by Greg Longenhagen


It’s 1965 London! Carnaby Street is in full color; Go-Go boots pound the pavements of Soho. A young sculptor, one Brindsley Miller and his upper-class fiancée Carol Melkett plot to impress a millionaire art collector AND Carol’s Daddy by displaying some “temporarily pinched” antiques from a neighbor’s flat and passing them off as Brindsley’s property! All goes awry when the power goes out, the neighbor returns home early and Brindsley’s ex-girlfriend gets a great idea! While Brindsley navigates his small soiree in the dark, his entire life unwinds, shedding new light on his bright future.

This brilliant one act farce by Peter Shaffer offers a great escape into a simpler time when young love, political innocence, and a healthy pour of Gin and Tonic could save the day!
