Black Comedy

Friday, October 17th 2014 - 8:00 pm at Four County Players
5256 Governor Barbour Street

Only one more chance to see Four County Players, BLACK COMEDY, by Peter Staffer.

​In one hilarious act, the action supposedly in the dark is illuminated; when the lights are to be on, the stage is the dark. 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 fiancée’s pompous father and a wealthy art dealer, Schuppanzigh. 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.

BLACK COMEDY is sold out for this Sunday’s performance, so Saturday night, November 1st is your last chance to see it! All tickets are only $12! The Cellar is Four County Players’ 60-seat black box theater, and reservations are highly recommended due to the limited number of seats. All tickets are general admission.  For more information or to purchase tickets, please call the Box Office at 540-832-5355, visit our new website at www.fourcp.org, or our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/fourcountyplayers.
