Black Comedy

Forfar Dramatic Society present Peter Shaffer’s classic 1965 Black Comedy in the Lochside Leisure Centre, Forfar, from Wednesday, November 16 to Saturday, November 19 at 7.30 pm.

It’s very black and very funny.

Shaffer also wrote the acclaimed plays ‘The Royal Hunt of the Sun’, ‘Equus’ and ‘Amadeus’. Black Comedy was first performed in the mid-sixties and focuses on struggling artist Brindsley Miller and his fiancée Carol who are having a party with the aim of impressing Carol’s bombastic father, Colonel Melkett, and millionaire Georg Bamberger, who may buy some of Brindsley’s sculptures. They have borrowed (without permission) the furniture and effects of a neighbour, the camp and fussy Harold Gorringe, to make the flat more presentable.

Before the guests arrive the main fuse blows, plunging the flat into darkness!

Tickets are available from Toy Castle, 81 Castle Street from the beginning of November or from Society members priced at £8 single, £6 concession and £25 family. On Wednesday November 16 all tickets are £6.
