How would you feel about a best friend if he or she suddenly did something so colossally stupid that it made you doubt the very basis of the friendship?
The doubt happens in Yasmina Reza’s monster international hit, “Art.”
When an art lover buys what is in essence a pure white canvas for a horse-choking sum, his best friend goes ballistic. To make matters worse a third friend gets squeezed in the middle.
Questions about the meaning of modern art and modern friendships — and how they are sometimes not all that different — fly thick in the limelight.
The production of “Art” is playing at the Smith Flat House, 2021 Smith Flat Road in Placerville, on Friday, Sept. 27 and Saturday, Sept. 28 at 8 p.m.
Professional theater director and graduate of Dell’Arte International, Jamie Van Camp directs the entertaining and thought-provoking play.
The play features an amazing cast of local professional actors: Graham Drake-Maurer as Marc, Hayden Comer as Serge and Tim Yancey as Yvan.
The world-renowned piece by the French playwright is full of intellect, jealousy, sardonic humor and ultimately friendship.
The play includes some explicit language and parental guidance is advised.
Tickets are $10.
