Art, Science And The Meaning of Life
The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology Drama Club will present Steve
Martin’s “Picasso at the Lapin Agile” at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 25, and Friday, April 26,
in the Surbeck Student Center Ballroom. Tickets are free with a Tech ID and for
everyone younger than 12, and $5 for those older than 12.
Tech students will perform, produce and direct the production. Steve Martin of Saturday
Night Live fame wrote the play.
The story is set in the Lapin Agile, a Paris Café, in 1903. Enter Albert Einstein and
Picasso. Einstein and Picasso engage in an intriguing conversation about science
versus art, and which will have more influence on the upcoming century. The play is set
just before Einstein wrote his “Theory of Relativity," and shortly before Picasso created
his first cubist painting. Several other very wacky characters enter the café to make the
story a funny yet thoughtful play about art, science and the meaning of life.
