Black Comedy

Springfield Contemporary Theatre presents Black Comedy by Peter Shaffer at Wilhoit Center Stage.

WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT, THE FUN BEGINS!
Lovesick and desperate, sculptor Brindsley Miller has embellished his apartment with furniture and objects d’arte “borrowed” from the absent antique collector next door hoping to impress his fiancee’s pompous father and a wealthy art dealer, Bamberger. The fussy neighbor, Harold Gorringe returns just as a blown fuse plunges the apartment into darkness and Brindsley is revealed teetering on the verge of very ripe farce. Unexpected guests, aging spinsters, errant phone cords and other snares impede his frantic attempts to return the purloined items before light is restored.

By Peter Shaffer, Directed by Patrick Schuster
Featuring Helen Groves, John M. Johnson, Luke Alan Mills, Pete Nielsen, Kaleb Norman, Alexis Peterson, Bryant Turnage and Adie Williams
