CAPE G Friday,-September 26; October 2,1997-- 63 Baystar opens 'Black Comedy' in Rehoboth C t. 2 Brindsley Miller had an impor- tant evening planned. A million- aire art collector was coming to his impoverished artist's flat to look at his sculptures - maybe even buy one. Brindsley could be on the threshold of artistic fame and fortune. But fate is not so kind to Brind- sley in the Baystar Dinner Theatre production of "Black Comedy," a British farce by Peter Shaffer which opens at the Sea Horse Restaurant on Thursday, Oct. 2, and continues on Thursday and Friday evenings through Oct. 31. "Black Comedy" gets its name from the fact that throughout most of the production the actors are in what is darkness to them but bright light to the audience. Just as Brindsley and his brand new fiancee Carol have finished replacing his packing crate furni- ture with fine antiques borrowed from his neighbor's flat across the hall - to impress the art collector, the neighbor being away on holi- day - a main fuse blows, plunging the building into darkness. The Craft Fair Continued from page 62 Anyone interested should con- tact her at (302) 645-4944. The Lewes Historical Society' craft fairs are among the area's most popular craft events. Situat- ed in the quiet village-like setting of the Society's Historical Com- plex, these shows attract thou- sands of visitors. The summer skids are suddenly greased and Brindsley's important evening starts on a downward slide. Momentum increases with the arrival of an upstairs neighbor, Miss Furnival, who is terrified of the dark. Then comes Col. Melkett, Carol's father, a retired regimental colonel whose rages have been known to intimidate even God. He has come to see if Brindsley is qualified to be his lit- tle dumpling's future husband. The evening reaches downward in warp speed when Harold Gor- ringe, the neighbor from whom Brindsley has borrowed the an- tique furniture, returns home early from his holiday. As Brindsley frantically tries to return the furni- ture in the blackout without Harold's knowledge, Clea, his ex- girlfriend and roommate of four years, returns to re-establish their relationship. Thus Brindsley's evening speeds toward total de- struction. "Black Comedy" is directed by Geoff Thompson of Lewes and is produced by Patty Alexander of event has run continuously for nearly 30 years. Admission for the Autumn Fair is only $2. The rain date is October 5. Food and bever- ages will be sold on the grounds. All proceeds benefit the Lewes Historical Society. Craft Fair committee members are Lou Braithwaite and Steve Rogers. Marie Adams is in charge of vol- unteers.
