Brindsley Miller is about to make it big. The world’s richest man is interested in buying some of Brindsley’s art and his girlfriend Carol has just agreed to marry him! If he can impress the art collector and his future father in law he will have it made. To seal the deal Brindsley has a plan, he’ll “borrow” some fancy furniture from his traveling neighbor and invite both gentlemen over for drinks. What could possibly go wrong?
Black Comedy is a British farce that takes a silly look at what can go wrong when you need everything to go right. It takes its title from a key situation in the play where the power goes out. The play starts in complete darkness with the characters acting as if they can see. When the power goes out, the stage lights come on and the audience can see what happens “in the dark”. What happens of course is a complete crumbling of Brindsley’s hopes and dreams as his neighbor returns, his mistress shows up, and the millionaire is unpardonably late.
Black Comedy runs through arts week at the Riverside Center.
