THE ANNEX IS NOW AT
THE ARTS COUNCIL OF SOUTHWESTERN INDIANA!
Evansville Civic Theatre will present the
final show of their 2014-2015 Underground season at the Arts
Council of Southwestern Indiana Bower-Surheinrich Foundation
Gallery with the appropriately titled play “ART” by Yasmina
Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton.
Winner of the 1998 Tony Award for Best
Play, the production questions the meaning and value of
friendship when Serge, a high-minded dermatologist with a
penchant for modern art, purchases a painting for a whopping sum
of cash; his friend Marc believes this is an incredibly stupid
decision, and as the debate ensues over the meaning of what
constitutes art, a third mutual friend, Yvan, attempts to
alleviate any damage to their fragile friendship. As the play
unfolds, the audience journeys along with the players in a deep
investigation of their own interpersonal relationships and a
search for self in this raucous cerebral comedy.
At times hilarious and at others touching,
Civic Theatre’s “ART” stars local actors Mike Ivie, Mark Taylor
and Zachary Tieken, and is directed by Nathan Veazey. The show
is set to open April 23, with subsequent performances on the 24,
25, and 26. Show times are 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday
and 2:30 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are on sale and can be
purchased at the Evansville Civic Theatre Box Office by calling
812-425-2800 or by visiting
Underground at the Annex
Since opening as a black box theatre in 2007, The Evansville
Civic Theatre Annex has been
home to numerous plays and musicals that audience members
wouldn't normally see on the Civic Theatre's Mainstage.
Annex shows often contain
adult material that some may find offensive or controversial,
but are meant to explore a part of theatre that is both thought
provoking and challenging. If you have any questions regarding
the nature of a show, please feel free to contact us at (812) 425-2800.
