Fubar Theater debuts tonight in Grass Valley with two one-act plays – Peter Shaffer’s “Black Comedy” and “Ventriloquism Made Easy” by John Sandoval.

“Black Comedy” is a madcap farce about love, art and eccentricity during a San Francisco blackout. Shaffer is the playwright of “Equus” and “Amadeus.”

“Ventriloquism Made Easy,” by Nevada City’s Sandoval, is about a late-night janitor who discovers a woman passed out drunk in an inn’s bathroom. Sandoval addresses the possibility that situations might not be as they appear.

Alexi Bonifield directs cast members Justin Ove, Marion Jeffery, Nicole Walker, Mark Schaeffer, Ken Harris, Erin Beckham, Sara Becker, Brandon Johnson and Cody Feiler.

Due to adult language and adult situations, Fubar Theater performances are recommended for anyone over 18 years of age.

Admission is $10 general and $5 college students and seniors. Advance tickets are at Odyssey Books, Nevada City Postal Co., Wallstreet Cafe and online at http://www.thecenterforthearts.org.

The show runs 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays through Feb. 15 at the Off Center Playhouse, 315 Richardson St., Grass Valley. The playhouse is in back of the Center for the Arts.

Call Bonifield at 271-5955 or Ove at 477-5152 for more information.
