BLACK COMEDY by Peter Shaffer Comedy

“One of the funniest and most brilliant short plays in the language”
Brindsley Miller is a young sculptor who is desperately hoping to impress a prospective investor: an eccentric millionaire art collector who will be visiting his home to view a sculpture. His debutante fiancée has also invited her father over, and in an effort to impress the two guests they “borrowed” some expensive furniture and antiques from their neighbour Harold, without his permission. Chaos ensues when the lights go out, Harold returns home early and Brindsley’s former mistress shows up unexpectedly.

One of the great masterpieces by France's most celebrated comic dramatist is brought to the 21st century.
