On Saturday, January 12, the Farnworth Art Museum and the Everyman Repertory Theatre will co-present a dramatic reading of a series of short plays by Don Nigro in the museum’s auditorium at 2 p.m. The snow date for the performance is Sunday, January 13, also at 2 p.m.

The plays to be dramatically read include Picasso, a monologue by artist Georges Braque about an argument he and Picasso had about finding a squirrel in one of his paintings; Dutch Interiors, a monologue by painter Vermeer; The Daughters of Edward D. Boit, featuring the four girls in the painting of that name by John Singer Sargent; and Europe After the Rain, a WWII-era interrogation of artist Max Ernst by two FBI agents.

The reading will be directed by Jennifer Hodgson, and the cast features Dagney Ernest, Paul Hodgson, Eva Hopkins, Andrea Itkin, Ryan Jackson, Robin Jones, Eliza Robinson, Scott Anthony Smith and David Troup.

This will be the first of two readings in this year’s Artists on Stage with Everyman Rep series. The second will be of Steve Martin’s play Picasso at the Lapin Agile, which will take place on Saturday, February 9, at 2 p.m. Tickets for each performance are $15 and $12 for Farnsworth members.
