‘Black Comedy’ by Theatre Arlington. (Courtesy photo by Eric Younkin) Theatre Arlington seems to do really well with humor. Following up a hilariously strong production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, they finish up its one-two punch of laughs with Peter Shaffer’s Black Comedy.

The show opened last weekend and closes Sunday. Which means, for a good time, call TA stat. Directed by Sharon Kaye Miller, the British farce was a sharp and clever comedy centered on the gimmick, if you will, that a power outage has turned everything pitch black.

Not to worry, the stage is fully lit with that understanding. Brindsley (Micah J.L. Brooks) is a mild-mannered, Beatles-esque looking artist who lives in a not-so-impressive flat.

He and his girlfriend Carol (Alli Franken) are readying the apartment with borrowed furniture from the vacationing neighbor’s apartment.
