WRITTEN BY YASMINA REZA | TRANSLATED BY CHRISTOPHER HAMPTON
A comedy masterpiece starring Nigel Havers, Denis Lawson & Stephen Tompkinson. One of the most successful comedies ever.
Art is a phenomenon and one of the most successful comedies ever. Having opened in 1996, it took both the West End and Broadway by storm, won Olivier, Tony, Moliere and every other major theatre award, and has been packing in audiences worldwide for more than twenty years.
When Serge spends an extortionate amount of money on an all white modernist painting, his close friends Marc and Yvan are baffled. But does their violent reactions to this provocative canvas mirror more dangerous antagonisms towards each other? Yasmina Reza’s dazzling study of friendship, prejudice and tolerance is a masterpiece.
The all-star cast features BAFTA nominated Nigel Havers (Downton Abbey, Coronation Street, Chariots of Fire), Olivier Award-winning Denis Lawson (Bleak House, New Tricks) and British Comedy Award- winning Stephen Tompkinson (The Split, Wild at Heart, Ballykissangel).
