Black Comedy is sure to launch a spectacular New Year
Like the best Champagne, Black Comedy is sure to launch a spectacular New Year!
This effervescent, high farce by the late Peter Shaffer (“Amadeus”, “Equus”), is a comic ballet that will have you falling out of your seat with laughter.
The play begins in complete darkness: Brindsley, a young sculptor, and his debutante fiancée, Carol have stolen some very expensive antiques from his neighbor Harold Gorringe, who is away for the weekend, to spruce up his normally slum-like apartment in order to impress Carol’s father and a wealthy prospective buyer named George Bamberger. Just before the guests arrive, a fuse in the cellar short-circuits causing a blackout. The stage is suddenly flooded with light while the actors blindly blunder through slapstick high jinks galore.
This classic is directed by Andrea Catangay, Co-Founder Deuce Theatre, and is also a Drama Teacher at Charleston County School of the Arts. Besides having their own company, Andrea and her husband Michael are no strangers to the Charleston Theatre scene.
The lead role is performed by charismatic talent, Addison Dent. Other roles are played by School of the Arts Drama teacher, Megan Link, Equity Actor Daniel Hall Kuhn, Deuce Theatre Co-founder Michael Catangay in a special guest cameo. SOBTC welcomes John Bryan, Bert Ross, and Charley Smith in their SOBTC debuts.
