Mobile – The Friends of Spring Hill College Library will host a reading of Mobilian Danielle Juzan’s recently written and soon-to-be-produced play “Artbruted” at 7 p. m. Thursday, Nov. 19 at Stewartfield on the campus of Spring Hill College. 

When the struggling M&M Art Gallery can’t pay its rent, the owner, Marian, aided by the ghost of her deceased business partner, Mark, concocts a scheme to pass off a local soccer mom’s sculptures as the work of an illiterate “outsider artist” from Dead Mule, Miss. Though they manage to deceive the newspaper’s arts critic, how much longer will luck smile on them? Juzan has written a comedy that entertains and raises questions about the relationship of art’s provenance to its value, both perceived and intrinsic.

The cast is composed of Mobile theater notables Candace Weber as Marian; Cannon Tucker as Mark; Stacey Driskell as “the artist,” Jeannie; Laureann Price as Claudia, the arts critic; and Mike Green as Jason, the photographer. There will be will be a reception following the presentation at which the audience can meet the actors. Light refreshments will be served, and a donation of $5 per person is appreciated.
