Our 26th Season
The IndependentsWritten & Directed by Christopher Ward
This is a bold new play about the great American impressionist Mary Cassatt and her stormy relationship with the demanding French artist Edgar Degas. Their short tumultuous time together resulted in the creation of a series of masterpieces that stunned the art world. These two strong-willed independent artists never backed down from a fight, nor failed to use their razor sharp wit to win an argument. The Independents is as humorous as it is educational. Fear not: you don’t need to know anything about art to enjoy the show. The great works of Cassatt and Degas will be prominently featured throughout the performance. The Independents will be an entertaining, enriching and enlightening experience for all who attend.
