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.
