Struggling artist Brindsley Miller and his fiance Carol are preparing a party to impress both her bombastic father and a millionaire patron of the arts. But, just as they’re ready, the main fuse blows, plunging the flat into darkness. Guests and other visitors arrive but, with no flashlights, candles or lighters, the characters fumble about, slamming into hot radiators, sharp furniture, and each other in this classic one-act comedy by Peter Shaffer (EquusAmadeus).

Directed by Brian Joyce, the cast includes Kendra Alaura, Alison Anderson, Josh Carson, H. William Kirsch, Caitlin Klemencic, Don Larsson, Don Maloney, and Matt Saxe.

By Gina Gionfriddo, directed by Ellen Fenster

"a ferociously funny comedy of outrageously bad manners" - Mail on Sunday

Maybe a blind date, dropped into the middle of some really complicated relationships, with people who may or may not be all they appear to be, isn't the best idea....

When an evening calculated to bring happiness takes a dark turn, crisis and comedy erupt in this wickedly funny play that asks what we owe the people we love and the strangers who land on our doorstep.

"It's been a while since we've seen a bona fide femme fatale onstage-That's why BECKY SHAW seems retro and fresh at the same time." - DC Theatre Scene
