Black Comedy  (Final Weekend)  April 12 - 14

Black Comedy,” a unique one act farcical comedy written by Peter Shaffer and directed by Jordana Lawrence, will be performed at the Alcazar Theatre in Carpinteria from April 5 through April 14, 2019.

The play takes place in London in 1965, where lovesick and desperate sculptor, Brindsley Miller, has embellished his apartment with furniture and objects d’arte to impress his fiancee’s pompous father. Unfortunately, Brindsley has “borrowed” his new décor from the absent antique collector next door. When his neighbor returns, just as a blown fuse plunges the apartment into darkness, Brindsley is revealed. What follows is a range of unexpected guests, errant phone cords and other snares which impede Brindsley’s frantic attempts to return the purloined items before light is restored.

 The title is actually a pun, and the reversed lighting of the stage – and audience – are all part of the fun.

 The cast features Todd Bollinger as Brindsley, as well as Kymberlee Weil, Claudia Kashin, Van Riker, Marlene Matosian, Melinda Yohe, Paige Sleep and Stuart Orenstein.
