Audience sees comedy cast kept in dark

Actors in the dark: Woolpit Drama club players rehearse Black Comedy.
Actors in the dark: Woolpit Drama club players rehearse Black Comedy.

A one-act farce which sees the cast stumbling around in a black-out will be staged by Woolpit Drama Club.

Fortunately, the audience won’t be in the dark – the stage lights will be on. But for the characters, a power cut turns out the lights in their flat.

Black Comedy was written by Peter Shaffer, who also wrote Sleuth, The Royal Hunt of The Sun, Five Finger Exercise, Amadeus and Equus.

The club says it is a clever concept and a challenge for any actor.

Club Chairman David Cordon says: “The play really is side-splittingly funny and I do urge you to go along.”

Black Comedy, May 14 to 16

Woolpit Village Hall. Tickets £10; from Elm Tree Gallery, Woolpit or 01359 240552
