Michael Billington: Suddenly after came this explosive farce by Peter Shaffer, Black Comedy, which is about a house that is plunged into darkness. But as all the lights go out, the lights on stage come up, so what you're watching is actors feeling their way around the furniture, and each other, in supposed darkness and of course we can see everything. I mean it is a hilarious and brilliant play so that should be there.
DISPLAY: This display showcases a variety of photographic responses to black British experience from the 1950s to the 1990s. All of the photographs are from the V&A Collection and were acquired as part of the project Staying Power: Photographs of Black British Experience 1950s-1990s, a collaboration with Black Cultural Archives funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
You may not have thought of including a gift to a museum in your will, but the V&A is a charity and legacies form an important source of funding for our work. It is not just the great collectors and the wealthy who leave legacies to the V&A. Legacies of all sizes, large and small, make a real difference to what we can do and your support can help ensure that future generations enjoy the V&A as much as you have.
