Skin Deep, a play written by Trish West, is a drama that will touch your heart and hopefully share some laughs as you relate to this family's struggle to see past what is considered "beautiful" and accept the image they see in the mirror. The media has convinced us we will be happier, younger, richer, if we buy into their idea what the right image is - judging a person by their physical appearance instead of what is beneath the surface ... what is more than skin deep.

Staged by the London Community Theatre, Skin Deep will be on stage at the Arts Project April 2nd - 5th,2014 and again in St Thomas April 12th. Elgin Theatre Guild has graciously donated the use of their theatre to have a charity performance Sat April 12th, 2014, where ticket sales will be in support of Wellspring London. Info and tickets for both events can be found at:

In conjunction with the play, West has also coordinated a Skin Deep High School Art Gallery, staged by high school students in art and theatre production, which will also be held at the Arts Project March 25th - April 5th, 2014. The entire gallery rental was a community effort involving over 50 individuals, as well as support from Family Karate Centers, allowing us to open the gallery to as many students as possible. The show includes 10 schools and 93 students involved from the Thames Valley District School Board and the London & District Catholic School Board. Students from London, Ingersoll, St. Thomas, Woodstock and Strathroy will proudly showcase 87 pieces in an exhibit that shares their thoughts, opinions and insecurities regarding beauty and self-image. Local singer/song-writer Dave Semple will perform during the first half of the opening art gala March 25th and 1023 FM personality Matt Loop will be the auctioneer.

A sneak peek of select pieces will be on display at the London Central Library's "red wall" for the month of March, and as many as we can fit in West's van will travel to St Thomas to be on display during the charity performance at the Elgin Theatre Guild.

During the evening of the Skin Deep High School Art Opening Gallery Gala March 25th, 7:00 - 9:00 p.m., there will be an auction with items that appeal to the high school students (karate/yoga trial packages, theatre production tickets to several shows in London, grad/prom makeup package etc. as well, several original art donated by local emerging and established artists). Items will be auctioned in support of Wellspring London.
