Black Comedy
    By Peter Shaffer

    23:00, Wed 18th November 2009 - Sat 21st November 2009 at ADC Theatre
    Michaelmas Week 6

    Sculptor Brindsley Miller and his fiancé Carol are throwing one lavish party. They’ve even ‘borrowed’ their holidaying neighbours’ finest furniture for the occasion. And all to convince Carol’s staunch military father that he should allow them to marry (and sell Brindsely’s work to the local millionaire art collector at the same time!) Everything seems to be going rather well…until the lights go out. Plunged into darkness, the hosts’ evenings don’t run quite so smoothly. Topped with a multitude of uninvited guests – including Brindsley’s mistress, the couple’s unwittingly generous neighbours, and a drunken teetotaller – the party very quickly falls into absolute disarray. From the pen of ADC alumnus Peter Shaffer (Equus, Amadeus), this hilarious farce will showcase the finest fresher talent from the University and have you howling with laughter.

    11pm, Wednesday 18th - Saturday 21st November @ ADC!
