Black Comedy/Captain Fantastick Meets the Ectomorph
Shaffer's one-act comedy pulls a theatrical switch by reversing dark and light, so that in the brief moments when the lights are "on" for the performers the stage is darkened; the rest of the time it is light for the audience and the characters stumble about in their own darkness. Pritchard takes us to a Southern town and with three men, brought together following a flood, examines their interaction in an amusing and sometimes illusive way.
