SCRIPTEASE

Actor's Salon

A Page-To-Stage Play Reading Series

Professional actors take the stage and perform a play, ON-SCRIPT. Lifting the characters off the page. This enhances the audience experience: the true craft of the actor and the playwright's words. No sets, costumes, lighting or sound effects. THE ESSENCE OF THE PERFORMING ARTS. An introduction to each play is provided by our company dramaturg - background of the play and playwright, along with poignant facts and tidbits are shared prior to the performance.

"ART" by Yasmina Reza and Christopher Hampton

 How  much would you pay for a white painting? Would it matter who the  painter was? Would it be art? One of Marc's best friends, Serge, has  just bought a very expensive painting. It's about five feet by four, all  white with white diagonal lines. To Marc, the painting is a joke, but Serge insists Marc doesn't have the proper standard to judge the work.  Another friend, Ivan, though burdened by his own problems, allows  himself to be pulled into this disagreement. Eager to please, Ivan tells Serge he likes the painting. Lines are drawn and these old friends square off over the canvas, using it as an excuse to relentlessly batter one another over various failures. As their arguments become less theoretical and more personal, they border on destroying their  friendships. At the breaking point, Serge hands Marc a felt tip pen and  dares him: "Go on." This is where the friendship is finally tested, and the aftermath of action, and its reaction, affirms the power of those bonds.


Winner  of the 1998 Tony Award for Best Play. Winner of the 1996 Olivier Award for Best Comedy. "…wildly funny, naughtily provocative…" —NY Post. "…a  nonstop cross-fire of crackling language, serious issues of life and art  expressed in outbursts that sound like Don Rickles with a degree from  the Sorbonne…Reza is a fiendishly clever writer…'ART' sounds like a  marriage of Molière and Woody Allen…" —Newsweek. "Anyone looking for a  play that is funny, sophisticated, stylish, stimulating and moving  should go to 'ART'." —Independent (London). "That such a simple plot can  throw up such profound and meaty ideas about the rules that dictate art  and friendship is a real treat. Reza and Hampton have an acute ear for  the idiocies, trivia and petty assaults that pepper the conversation  between friends…The real pleasures come from Reza's creation of three  beautifully defined, original characters…" —The Mail (London). "In  October I called it a minor classic. Let's change that to classic  comedy, period." —London Times.
