An enlighteningly funny farce by Peter Shaffer.
This side splitting comedy features reverse lighting where light is dark and dark is light. Thus characters stumble around blindly in the light but the audience never searches for laughs. The story from acclaimed playwright Sir Peter Shaffer (Amadeus, Equus) starts when a power outage foils the plans of a young sculptor to impress his fiance’s father and a millionaire art collector with furniture he ‘borrowed’ from his out of town neighbor. His schemes are plunged into chaos when a fuse blows and his neighbor returns. Unexpected guests, aging spinsters, errant phone cords and other snares impede his frantic attempts to return the stolen items before the light is restored, but ensure that hilarity ensues.
