Black Comedy

When the stage is lit up, the characters are actually in the dark.  When the stage is dark, the lights are actually on in the characters' world.  That may not make sense, but hopefully it will if you attend Springfield Contemporary Theatre's new production of Peter Shaffer's 1965 British farce Black Comedy, opening tonight and running through June 19 at SCT Center Stage in Wilhoit Plaza.
