Kent-Meridian High presents ‘Black Comedy' May 19-20

A hilarious story set in London of a young artist trying to sell his sculptures to a German millionaire

The Kent-Meridian High School Drama program presents Peter Schaffer’s “Black Comedy” on Friday, May 19 and Saturday, May 20.

The play, set in London, tells the hilarious story of young artist, Brindsely, trying to sell his sculptures to a German millionaire.

The production runs 75 minutes and is most appropriate for those 12 years and older.
