Black Comedy At Signature Theatre

images-1Imagine a play that takes place in the dark, literally in the dark. Throw in a fiancé, the fiancé’s military father, two neighbors, ex-girlfriend, alcohol, and two German visitors.. what could possibly go wrong? Everything. In a hilarious farce that is full of misunderstandings a la “Three’s Company,” the laughs keep coming a mile a minute.

Friday night was $10 night for the play Black Comedy by Peter Shaffer with the No Rules Theatre Company.  This show is fantastic, clever, hilarious, and unlike anything I’ve ever seen!

The show starts off with the whole theatre in the dark literally, then the lights go on stage and the whole play is conducted with the play being done in the dark.  Watching the characters bumble around on stage is hysterical.  The situations the two main characters get into are pretty amusing too.

Especially fantastic to watch was the character Brindsley Miller played by Jerzy Gwiazdowski who acts like a modern day Jim Carrey.  He does amazing facial expressions and pratfalls.  Also enjoyable was the character Harold Gorringe played with delightful aplomb by Brian Sutow.

Signature Theatre welcomes Helen Hayes Award-winning No Rules Theatre Company in residency for the 2012/13 season. A unique dual-city theater company, each season No Rules presents three dynamic shows built around a central theme.
