Comedy with a real twist… the audience can see the actors, but they can’t see each other. When the lights go on for the audience, the actors must pretend they are in a “black out.” The action supposedly in the dark is illuminated; when the lights are to be on, the stage is the dark.
Lovesick and desperate, sculptor Brindsley Miller has embellished his apartment with furniture and objects d'arte "borrowed" from the absent antique collector next door hoping to impress his fiancee's pompous father and a wealthy art dealer. The fussy neighbor returns just as a blown fuse plunges the apartment into darkness and Brindsley is revealed teetering on the verge of very ripe farce. Unexpected guests, aging spinsters, errant phone cords and other snares impede his frantic attempts to return the purloined items before light is restored.
