August 25 – August 28, 2016
“ART”, is a theatrical production will be performed by the Reading Community Players in the gallery beginning August 25 through Sunday, August 28. Evening performances are scheduled for 7 p.m., with a matinee on Sunday afternoon. The play has been called “…one of the most craftily titled plays in the contemporary theater” in the New York Times. Written by Yasmina Reza, the play centers around a very expensive painting, all white, purchased by a man and under critical scrutiny by his friends. “Art,'' by design, is not so much about art as it is about friendship, and though it has been insistently labeled as a comedy, the playwright has called it a tragedy as well. This event is free for students with ID, $15.00 for adults and $12.00 for Senior citizens.
