SYDNEY CONTEMPORARY ART MUSEUM – OPENING NIGHT is a satire on art practice. “It’s opening night at the Sydney Contemporary Art Museum and things are not going well.” A play about modern art, love and elephant dung… and suicidal Santas! And we have 10 double tickets to give away to the real opening night.
We get an inside look at the gallery, Sydney’s premiere depository of modern art, which is having a few problems. Max the manager has lost his funding, his assistant is about to be deported, the artists are late, his coffee is cold, his girlfriend is dumping him and Santa hasn’t arrived yet.
A new play by Matthew Nicholls, author of RAPPING WITH KNUCKLES, SCAM is a comedy that will amuse delight and entertain. As timeless as a Duchamp urinal and as ground breaking as a painted elephant, this work is an exploration of the transitive nature of the artistic medium, a synergistic intertwining of the authorial voice and the dramatic materials of the creative environment.
Starring Steve Maresca, Sophie Lepowic, Nathaniel Hole and Julie Hyde and an ensemble of talented actors.
Thanks to the producers, Sydney Arts Guide has 10 double tickets to give away to the 7 pm performance, Tuesday 20th March. To be in the running to win one of the passes email SAG (firstname.lastname@example.org)using SCAM COMP as the subject by 5pm Friday 16th March. Only winners will be notified.
