Lught, darkness and British humour at ArCuB

ArCuB – The Cultural Project Centre of the Bucharest Municipal Hall, is presenting the ‘Black Comedy’ by Peter Shaffer, at the ArCuB Hall, today, 7:00 pm, a performance directed by Cristian Dumitru. Peter Shaffer is one of the most important British playwrights of the 20th century. Among his works, Equus (1977) and Amadeus (1984), both of which were made into films, with the latter garnering no fewer than eight Oscars. The ‘Black Comedy’ belongs to the farce genre and is one of the most amusing theatrical texts from the second half of the 20th century. The play, inspired by old Chinese theatre, deals with the reversed significance of light and dark. A power blackout on a Sunday evening proves being of vital importance to the play’s protagonists, distorting their whole carefully planned unfolding of events. Things don’t go as planned, given the dark enveloping the characters, and the relentless whirl of confusions and surprises.Tickets cost RON 26.50 to 35 and can be purchased at the ArCuB ticket booth, Batiste St, no 14.
