Black Comedy

(Cast:  Kent Ross, Chris Keehn, Sarah Simpson, Jim Johnson, Chris Pyle, Mischel Miller, Kyle Hager, Mike Hall)

Black Comedy by Peter Shaffer studies the effect of loss of light would have on a group of people who hold things from each other. Set in London during an electrical blackout and opening with a dinner party on a dark stage, the play is written to be staged in reversed lighting – so when the blackout occurs, the lights actually come up and the characters are seen floundering about appearing to be invisible to each other.  Hence the “pun” title – Black Comedy. The play ran in Dodge City from October 14 – November 6, 1993.
