NEED TO LAUGH? Join Theatre Arlington for BLACK COMEDY!

Are you sick and tired of this oppressive heat? Need to laugh? A Lot?
Then you need to grab a friend or two and come on down to Theatre Arlington for Peter Shaffer’s hilarious farce, Black Comedy.
Well, you see…lovesick and desperate, sculptor Brindsley Miller has embellished his apartment with furniture and objects d’arte “borrowed” from the absent antique collector next door, hoping to impress his fiancée’s pompous father and a wealthy art dealer.  The fussy neighbor, Harold Gorringe, returns just as a blown fuse plunges the apartment into darkness and Brindsley is revealed. Unexpected guests, aging spinsters, errant phone cords, and other snares impede his frantic attempts to return the “borrowed” items before light is restored. This laughter-inducing farce could have you looking forward to your next power outage.
(Just not in Texas in July!)


Theatre Arlington’s production of Black Comedy, directed by Sharon Kaye Miller, marks the fourth production in the theater’s 49th season. You will enjoy Black Comedy from the comfort of your beautiful, roomier new seats in the middle of a fresh, modern space with state-of-the-art lights and sound, thanks to a recent capital campaign spurred on by the generous $2 million grant from the Arlington Tomorrow Foundation. To make your experience even better, Theatre BARlington will be open serving ice-cold wine and beer (or your favorite soft drinks).
