The Great Debate       Now – Sept. 27

Remai Arts Centre

It’s the age old question; what makes a work of self-expression and creativity, worthy of value, what makes it art? Persephone Theatre is opening it’s 2017/ 2018 season with the comedy Art which focuses on that very subject. Serge has just spent a huge amount of money on a piece that is white lines on white canvas. His friend Marc is horrified that Serge actually paid money for a white canvas and their friend Yvan is torn between the two opinions. This show is a story about friendship and full of fun. Tickets are $26 – $46 and the show runs till the end of the month.
