The Mount Mansfield Union High School Theatre Department presents the end of the year SENIOR THEATRE PRODUCTION of BLACK COMEDY, a British farce by Peter Shaffer. Performances will be Friday & Saturday June 2nd & 3rd at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $5 for students & children and $7 for general admission. Fun for the whole family.
Things are going badly for struggling artist Brindsley Miller and his fiancée Carol during a party designed to impress Carol’s bombastic father, Colonel Melkett, and millionaire Georg Bamberger, who may buy some of Brindsley’s sculptures. They have borrowed (without permission) the furniture and effects of their fussy neighbor, Ellis, to make Brindsley’s more presentable. Before the guests arrive the power goes out, plunging the flat into darkness; only the audience can see what is happening. What follows is a frantic romp with unexpected visitors, mistaken identities, and surprises lurking in every dark corner! The result, as you might expect, is chaotic, disastrous – and very funny!
