About This Show

manhattantheatresource presents a dirtyboy production of Black Comedy / The White Liars, an evening of two 1 act comedies by acclaimed playwright Peter Shaffer.

by Peter Shaffer Directed by Daryl Boling
“Disaster strikes when an aspiring artist, Brindsley, has his plans to impress his girlfriend’s father disrupted by a power outage. As they all stumble and grope around in the dark, the characters remain clearly visible to the audience at all times… and mayhem ensues. Shaffer wrote Black Comedy in 1965 and it is still one of the funniest short farces of the 20th Century.”

starring Steve Deighan*, Catherine Dyer*, Jenna Hawkins*, Jeff Plunkett*, John Quinn*, Ben Thomas, Beth White
