THE WHITE LIARS and BLACK COMEDY at USC Lab Theatre

USC Department of Theatre and Dance presents The White Liars and Black Comedy September 23-26 at the USC Lab Theatre. Two clever one-acts share the bill for an evening of outrageous farce by acclaimed playwright Peter Shaffer (Amadeus, Equus). In The White Liars, a down-and-out fortune teller is visited by two new clients, each hoping to use her wiles to manipulate the other. In the uproarious Black Comedy, a young artist tries to impress both his fiance’s father and a haughty art dealer by “borrowing” his antique-collecting neighbor’s expensive furnishings. When the neighbor shows up unexpectedly in the midst of a power outage, our hero frantically attempts to return the stolen goods and keep his ruse under wraps. Tickets $10.
