UNDERGROUND AT THE ANNEX IS NOW AT
THE ARTS COUNCIL OF SOUTHWESTERN INDIANA!

"ART"

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 www.evansvillecivictheatre.org.

About The Underground at the Annex Shows

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.

Underground shows are $10 for general admission tickets and can be purchased online or by calling the Evansville Civic Theatre's Box Office during regular business hours.
