Shaffer’s “Black Comedy” and Dresser’s “At Home” Will Be Performed
Pittsburgh, Pa. – Carlow University Theatre (CUT) will present a double-header evening of farces comprised of Peter Shaffer’s Black Comedy and Richard Dresser’s At Home at 8 p.m. on Thursday, March 31, Friday and Saturday, April 1 and 2, and Thursday through Saturday, April 7, 8, and 9 in the Rosemary Heyl Theatre, located in Antonian Hall on the Carlow campus.
Black Comedy is a wild comedy by Shaffer (better known for Amadeus) where a power outage hits an artist’s apartment building on the most important night of his life. The twist is that when the lights go out in the real world, they come up on stage—the play starts in darkness and when the lights go out, the lights onstage go on, revealing to the audience what the characters in the dark can’t see.
At Home is a farce about contemporary marriage and cookie-cutter apartments. A new-to-the-neighborhood couple returns home after a party and begin an amorous game only to find that they’ve awoken another couple that was asleep upstairs –they’re in the wrong apartment. (Or are they?)
Black Comedy will be directed by Jay Keenan and At Home will be directed by Steve Fatla.
Tickets are $10, $7 for Seniors & Students. Reservation line is 412-578-8749
