Black Comedy

By Peter Shaffer

Directed by Greg Harris

When a blackout appears to foil the ambitious plans of an aspiring young artist to impress both a potential benefactor and a future father-in-law, hilarity ensues. This one act play performed without intermission will leave you breathless with its fast paced slapstick humor and delight you with its inventive twist, staging action that takes place entirely in the “dark.”

New York Times – “…almost foolproof comically.”

"Black Comedy shines…an outrageous cake of kookiness" —Peter Birnie, The Vancouver Sun
