Art Dealer: A sixty-five-year-old man.
Artist: A thirty-year-old man
Caravan Play Reading Series performed this play and six other short plays of mine in an evening of my plays.
Recommendations on New Play Exchange;
“ Art as a cultural commodity works well as the subject of a theatrical piece since performed plays are also cultural commodities that not everyone appreciates. I love the back and forth negotiating that takes place between these men, and the big reveal of the “masterpiece” near the end of the play is hysterical. It would be well worth the price of admission, whatever that may be! ” Andrew Martineau
“ There’s nothing like an afternoon at the MoMA making fun of everything. Levine both evokes this spirit and the genuine multitude of profound, complex emotions art can evoke (for creator and viewer). He balances both wonderfully in this humorous short, while also throwing other variables like money necessities for dealers and how our age changes our perspective into the mix. A brilliant little piece that would surely be a hit any at short festival. ” Daniel Prillaman
