An Evening of Farces: Peter Shaffer’s Black Comedy and Tom Stoppard’s The Real Inspector Hound

Black Comedy places us in the apartment of an aspiring artist as he’s about to meet both his fiancee’s father, and a famous art critic.  When the power goes out, complications arise.

The Real Inspector Hound is an absurdist parody of a country-house murder mystery. When two pompous theater critics get mistakenly involved in the whodunit they’re supposed to be watching, the audience gets caught up in the twists and turns of a play within a play.

Both playwrights have won Oscars and Tony Awards. This is a hilarious two-in-one evening you won’t want to miss.

Directed by Liz Tracey and Krista Neumann.
