Pace Academy, recognized by Atlanta Magazine as one of the city’s Best Schools for the Arts, will present the play Black Comedy Jan. 26 and 27 in the school’s Fine Arts Center.
Black Comedy, a one-act farce by playwright Peter Shaffer, is the story of a struggling artist and his fiancée on the evening they decide to give a dinner party in their London flat. Before the guests arrive, a fuse blows, plunging the flat into darkness. Only the audience can see what is happening, and hilarity ensues as unexpected guests arrive.
The production features a talented cast of Upper School students, led by seniors Colin Barham and Hannah Hoff. Seniors Larisa Bainton, John Carolin, Patrick Corbett and Jakob Gorgens, junior Alex Paré and sophomore Sam Downey round out the cast.
Performances will take place Jan. 26 and 27 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 and may be purchased at the Pace Academy front desk during the week of Jan. 24 or at the door. Pace Academy is located at 966 W. Paces Ferry Road, NW, Atlanta 30327.
