This Friday 31st Theatrephonic round up their Christmas series with the perfect piece to end the year.

‘Art History’

For her end of term Art History module, Saskia wants Lisa to examine a work of art in her house or a painting to which she feels a connection. But Lisa is struggling to be objective. The painting she has chosen is the last one her ex-husband gave her. What is the legacy of the work, asks Saskia?

Well, it was painted by a man who’s partner was also … my husband, and anyway, he was a dog painter really and I’m not a dog person.

Stay away from anecdotes Lisa. Context!

In the future we won’t need to know about art history, says Lisa. Post oils, it will be more about foraging and food fermentation.

‘Bye Saskia, I’ve got a sack of cabbages to shred.’

Very clever and very funny. I loved this.
