I just realized that we don't have a thread for this (I think), so: come see Black Comedy! It's a very funny play being presented by the Saint John Theatre Company next week, March 17th to 19th, 8 PM at the Imperial with a matinee on the 19th at 2 PM as well.

Black Comedy is a British farce set in the 60s, written by Peter Shaffer (Amadeus, Equus), about a young sculptor called Brinsley who has borrowed his neighbour's expensive furniture to try to impress a visiting millionaire patron and his fiancee's strict father. Meanwhile, his ex-girlfriend plans to pay an unexpected visit and his neighbour has returned early from vacation. On top of all this, the action takes place during a power outage, so the characters cannot see each other, and as a result there is a lot of physical comedy; fans of Fawlty Towers, the Carry On movies and Britcoms in general should find a lot to like.

The show is directed by Scott Thomas and features many of us from the Improvisation Corporation, including me, Keith Dickson, Anthony Stuart, and Chelsea Cusack, with Colin MacDonald as Brinsley, Prof. Bob Moore as the Colonel, Kizzy Kaye as Mrs. Furnival, and GC's own Candice MacLean as Clea.

Black Comedy is shaping up to be a very funny show, a perfect antidote to the doldrums of winter, so we hope to see you there!
