Bruce, Can Light Escape A Black Hole?

I find it difficult to believe that light cannot escape a black hole. If light can pass through an event horizon to enter a black hole, why could not light on a reverse trajectory leave a black hole? It seems to me that the event horizon is more of a communications barrier or a place where communications starts to break down. The Theory of Relativity is no longer applicable since there is an unwritten assumption that the frames of reference can communicate with one another. Your comments please.
