All for One, or AF1, as they are known, will produce the play, "Art," written by Yasmina Reza and translated by Christopher Hampton.

It has won multiple awards in New York, London and Paris, including a Tony Award for play of the year.

It has also been translated into more than 30 languages.

The play is about three close friends, Serge, Marc and Yvan.

When Serge buys a painting of questionable artistic quality, Marc challenges his common sense.

During the resulting arguments, Yvan attempts to have both sides reconcile but is instead drawn into the fray. What happens next is tragically hilarious and will have you questioning your beliefs about friendship.

All For One was founded by Robert Trader, Adam Januszewski, Marc Hardaker and Tim West.

The company takes its name from the Creative Outlets production of Three Musketeers in 2006, which was the first large-scale play in which the founders worked together.

Trader, Januszewski and Hardaker are all alumni of East Troy High School's drama program while West is a veteran of multiple local productions.

Within the company, Januszewski has multiple duties including acting and public relations, Hardaker is the technical director and Trader and West share acting and artistic direction duties.

Joining AF1 on stage will be Mike Cha who has been involved with many local theater companies including Lakeland Players, PLAY Productions and Creative Outlets.

He brings talent and experience and was handpicked for the role of Yvan. Serge and Marc, meanwhile, will be played by Trader and Januszewski respectively. West serves as the play's director while Hardaker holds the duties of stage manager and technical director.

'Art' is a briskly paced show done in a single act.

The tempo and the lack of an intermission require the utmost concentration of the trio of actors.

Performances will be held at 7:30 p.m., May 9-11 with an additional performance at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 11. All shows will be held at Michael Fields Agricultural Institute. For tickets or any other information, call (262) 215-2106 or e-mail afone.2008@gmail.com.
