Programme Note #1: Art

JG wrote: “Throughout our lives we meet many people. Some are important to us for short periods of time, while others remain friends for many years. Some we see every day, while others we contact just once a year. What makes friendship work? Like all relationships, they need to be nurtured – we need to try to support our friends hen they need us and forgive them if they are unable to always be there for us.

Within a group of friends there need to be people who take different rôles to to keep the group together. If one person’s circumstances change, everyone needs to adapt to that change, or the group will splinter. This play is not about Art, it is about what happens when a piece of art becomes more important than a friendship.

I am fortunate to have many different groups of friends – from school, work, sport and theatre – and I thank them for always being there when I need them.”
