Ex-students come back to University to entertain

If you fancy watching less TV and seeing some live entertainment this year, The Rose Theatre at Edge Hill University has a fantastic programme of shows on offer.

The spring season kicks off with a hilarious play called ‘Art’ by Yasmina Reza.

Serge has bought a modern painting for a huge sum of money. Marc hates it and cannot believe that a friend of his could possibly want such a work. Yvan attempts, unsuccessfully, to placate both sides.

If your friendship is based on a tacit mutual agreement, what happens when one person does something completely unexpected? The question is: Are you who you think you are or are you who you think your friends think you are?

Three Edge Hill Drama graduates, Will Comer, Elric Cadwallader and Brenton James started the GreasySpoon Theatre Company in 2006.

Their creative use of the theatre brings energy and intimacy to Yasmina Reza’s anarchic comedy of friendship, fortune and failure.

Art can be seen at 7:30pm on Wednesday 21 and Thursday 22 January.

Tickets are priced at £7.00, £3.50 concessions and are available from the box office on 01695 58 4480
