Art, by Yasmina Reza
Progress Theatre, The Mount, Christchurch Road, Reading

Translated by Christopher Hampton

“My friend Serge has bought a painting…”

So begins the belligerent and outraged Marc, self appointed voice of common sense, as he and his two oldest friends – the emerging aesthete Serge and the ever insecure Yvan – discover that their views on art, status and relationships don’t match up.

Could the purchase of an extravagant piece of modern art trigger the deconstruction and destruction of a friendship built up over fifteen years?

Art is a hilarious play centred on perceptions and perspectives filled with beautifully crafted dialogue and characters.

8-11 pm
Hungerford Jazz ForumHungerford Jazz Forum presents:
Hungerford Jazz Forum
Royal British Legion, Church Way, Hungerford

The Hungerford Jazz Forum was set up by Andy Richardson and George Wicks in 2002.

The idea behind HJF was, and still is, to give performers of all ages the opportunity to perform for a live audience in a friendly environment.

Beginning and intermediate players are welcome as we recognise that doing it for real is the best experience there is. Woodshedding is essential but it's a waste of time if you don't get up and blow!

HJF is pleased to recognise the support from a wide range of musicians and we are proud that we also have support from young musicians who are still at school.

Artists at Lower Way FarmArtists at Lower Way Farm presents:
Artists at Lower Way Farm
Lower Way Farm, Lower Way, Thatcham, RG19 3TL

This year, a lively exhibition with a real sense of fun will take over Lower Way Farm including sculpture, ceramics, painting and illustration from five established local artists.

Sophie Waite’s rustic ceramic objects sit beautifully alongside Nuala Whales’ emotive oil paintings.

Diana Pattenden’s beautiful bronze sculptures feature animals with real personality and an energy that brings them to life.

Jo Burton’s paintings personify the ornate with layers of collage, paint and gold leaf, in stark contrast to the quirky illustrations of Vikki Aust with her vividly imagined characters and their equally abnormal worlds.
