CANVAS Offers Inside Look at the Art of Politics

By Lookout Staff

September 12 -- Deception, politics and ambition surround the commission of a painting by a well-known Los Angeles artist in CANVAS, a new play by G. Bruce Smith that premiers Thursday at Electric Lodge in Venice.

The play offers an inside look at how bureaucracy stifles creativity in both a painter suffering artists’ block and a bureaucrat bursting to create, but lacking an outlet.

Using flashbacks and fast forwards, the play builds suspense, with the image on the covered canvass assuming the all the mystery of a who-done-it. In the end, the secrets that shroud the canvas threaten to shatter lives.

Directed by Laura Black, CANVAS stars Lily Sauvage, Peter James Smith and Annmarie Hehir. The featured painting is by Jeff Robinson and the lighting design by Tiffany Williams.

The play contains adult situations, adult language and nudity.

A presentation of Playwights 6, CANVAS will have four performances only --
Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $20, and $7 for students with an ID. For groups of 10 or more, the group rate is $10 each. All tickets must be purchased with cash or check.

Wine and refreshments will be available in the theater's lobby before and after the show.
