The Winchester Players open their 82nd season with one of the stages most acclaimed comedies of the 20th century, 'ART' by Yasmina Reza.
Opening November 7th
Directed by Joe Stallone and starring Judson Pierce as Serge, Mark Soucy as Marc, and Jim Remmes as Yvan. 'ART' invites the audience into the lives of three men whose presumed tight-knit, 15 year friendship begins to unravel when a 4' x 4' canvas is thrust in their midst.
"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… the real pleasure comes from Reza's creation of three beautifully defined, original characters…" - The Mail (London)
"What binds us…?"
What holds friendships together, what tears them apart? In the course of 90 minutes (or less), Serge, Marc and Yvan take us on a "non-stop crossfire of crackling language, serious issues of life and art expressed in outbursts that sound like Don Rickles with a degree from the Sorbonne" (Newseek).
In one of the plays most poignant moments Serge asks Marc "Do you have any idea what binds you to me?" Indeed. What are the ties that bind and once unbound can they ever be joined again? Come find the answer.
Presented in one act, no intermission.

This Pulitzer finalist looks in on a once-promising novelist as she returns home to announce the imminent publication of a memoir dredging up a pivotal and tragic event in the family's history. When not all the facts align with her work, she is left to decide whether she has a greater obligation to her family or to the truth and to her work as a writer.
