7 minutes. Comedy
Cast size: 4, gender flexible

The crew is trying to get the stage set for the next piece, but a battle ensues over the right placement of the furniture. And the stupid candle just won’t light.  Curse the Darkness is a perfect stealth comedy for a festival of short plays. Super fun, physical comedy.
