Description

One of Marc’s best friends, Serge, has just bought a very expensive painting. It’s about five feet by four, all white with white diagonal lines. To Marc, the painting is a joke, but Serge insists Marc doesn’t have the proper standard to judge the work. Another friend, Ivan, allows himself to be pulled into this disagreement. Eager to please, Ivan tells Serge he likes the painting. Lines are drawn and these old friends square off over the canvas, using it as an excuse to relentlessly batter one another over various failures. As their arguments become more personal, they border on destroying their friendships. At the breaking point, Serge hands Marc a felt tip pen and dares him: “Go on.” This is where the friendship is finally tested, and the aftermath of action, and its reaction, affirms the power of those bonds.

Northside Theatre Company (NTC) was founded in 1978 by current managing artistic director, Richard Orlando. In 1980, NTC became a registered non-profit organization. Northside is currently in its 28th season and receives national attention for new play development while leading the way in re-defining the integrity and importance of small theatre organizations and their critical importance to the development of industry standards and emerging artists.

For 28 years, Northside hallmarks have been experimentation, education and performance. Northside Theatre Company has been as much a philosophy as a production company.
