How was your experience?
The Washington Stage Guild presents plays with intellectual content in a small theater with general admission seating. THE OLD MASTERS is a 2004 Simon Gray play, set in pre-WW II Italy, about the art critic Bernard Berenson and a dispute over attribution of a painting being sold to Andrew Mellon. Considering the subject, the play is surprisingly entertaining, well acted, with sharp dialogue. Adding to the play's interest is that the actual painting hangs in DC's National Gallery.
