Theatre Company Presents Two Short Comedies

The Clarkson Theatre Company will present two short comedies, “Black Comedy” and “The Real Inspector Hound” in the downtown Snell Auditorium on April 19, 20 and 21 at 8 p.m., and April 19 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.

“Black Comedy,” written by Peter Schaffer, shows the stumbling and bumbling of a young starving artist, Brindsley, who wishes to impress his fiancée’s father with his neighbor Harold’s furniture. A fuse blows in Harold’s apartment, and the play progresses with all of the characters, including the neighbor Harold and Brindsley’s ex-lover Cleo, trying to find their way in the dark.

“The Real Inspector Hound,” written by Tom Stoppard, is a play about shifting roles within the theatre. The play opens with two theatre critics, Moon and Birdboot, watching a play, but with a few twists and turns, the critics find themselves on stage with the actors sitting in their seats as critics. “The Real Inspector Hound” spoofs everything from critics to murder mysteries to high society to card games.

General Admission for the two comedies is $5, and $3 for students and senior citizens.
