BLACK COMEDY written by Peter Shaffer

Directed by Tony Rive
Presented by Darwin Theatre Company and Cavenagh Theatre Trust.
‘An Amateur Production By Arrangement with ORiGiN Theatrical, on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.’

“I’ve got a foreboding. It’s all going to be a disaster”

With the impending arrival of the world’s richest man to judge artist Brindsley Miller’s work, the young sculptor and his fiancée ‘borrow’ some antiques from their out-of-town neighbour to impress him.

Just as they get everything in order, a blackout hits the building. Poor Brindsley now has to navigate not only the potential benefactor, but an apathetic Electrics Company, his fiancee’s bitter father, a tee-totalling spinster, the early return of his antique-loving neighbour and the unannounced arrival of his very mischievous ex.

What could go wrong?
