‘ART’ by Yasmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton
4:00 pm Sunday and 7:30 all other night
Springs Ensemble Theatre, 1903 E. Cache La Poudre, Colorado Springs 80909
Springs Ensemble Theatre (“SET”) continues our fifth anniversary season with Yasmina Reza’s, ‘ART’ a comedy that challenges the conventions of art and the definition of friendship.
Marc is upset because one of his best friends, Serge, has bought a painting. It’s a canvas about five feet by four, white on white with diagonal white lines. Marc thinks the painting is a joke. Serge thinks Marc doesn’t have the training to understand. Their other friend, Yvan, eager to placate both of them, allows Marc and Serge to pull him into the middle of their disagreement. As the play goes on, lines are crossed, loyalties tested, and the trio’s arguments become less theoretical and more personal. Will their friendship survive?
For more information or to make reservations, call SET’s box office line at (719) 357-3080, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our website: springsensembletheatre.org.
