Playreaders presents Art
By Lauren Osornio
What does the word “art” mean to you? Is a white canvas art when an “artist” has painted it? Can art be a joke? Marc’s best friend, Serge, has bought a very expensive painting. It’s all white with white diagonal lines. Marc thinks it’s a joke, but Serge insists that Marc knows nothing about contemporary painting and therefore does not have the right to judge this piece of art. Enter a third friend, Ivan, who is not bothered by the white painting and who wants to keep the peace between his two friends. Can a real friendship be threatened by a piece of art? Come and see for yourself how these three friends square off over a white canvas. The Times of London called Art “a classic comedy.” There will be a brief open discussion between audience and actors after the show.
