Black Comedy @ St. Pete City Theatre
Written by Peter Shaffer and directed by Rob Colwell, Black Comedy involves a struggling artist about to meet both his fiancée's father and a major art investor on the same evening. Lovesick and desperate, sculptor Brindsley Miller has embellished his apartment with furniture and objects d'arte "borrowed" from the absent antique collector next door hoping to impress his fiancee's pompous father and a wealthy art dealer. When the fussy neighbor returns just as a blown fuse plunges the apartment into darkness, Brindsley is revealed teetering on the verge of very ripe farce. Unexpected guests, aging spinsters, errant phone cords and other snares impede his frantic attempts to return the purloined items before light is restored. As darkness falls over the apartment and guests, much more is revealed about the artist than he ever wanted brought to light. Performances are September 12-28, Fridays & Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm. Tickets are $22.00. Call the box office at 727-866-1973 or visit www.spcitytheatre.org to purchase tickets.

The Divine Connection Between Form and Nature is an exhibit that displays the relationship that our Great Mother- Gaia, has with all she has created; the elements and the life forms of our earth. I use the classic forms of printmaking with intaglio & relief, along with oil painting on canvas- to try and show my appreciation to the strength and beauty that surrounds us in all its divine prosperity- positive and negative.

Practicing restorative yoga has helped many people fight fatigue and depression, recover from illness, injury, and trauma. When you are more relaxed, you are less vulnerable to the many stress-related illnesses that plague us. So come in and relax! Whether this is your main yoga practice, or a change-of-pace, you're going to feel refreshed, open, and calm when you leave the room.
