Recipient of the 1998 Tony Award® for Best Play | 1996 Olivier Award for Best Comedy
“Anyone looking for a play that is funny, sophisticated, stylish, stimulating and moving should go to 'ART'.” —The Independent (UK).

THE STORY: How much would you pay for a white painting? Would it matter who the painter was? Would it be art? One of Marc’s best friends, Serge, has just bought a very expensive painting. It’s about five feet by four, all white with white diagonal lines. To Marc, the painting is a joke, but Serge insists Marc doesn’t have the proper standard to judge the work. Another friend, Ivan, though burdened by his own problems, allows himself to be pulled into this disagreement. Eager to please, Ivan tells Serge he likes the painting. Lines are drawn and these old friends square off over the canvas, using it as an excuse to relentlessly batter one another over various failures. As their arguments become less theoretical and more personal, they border on destroying their friendships. At the breaking point, Serge hands Marc a felt tip pen and dares him: “Go on.” This is where the friendship is finally tested, and the aftermath of action, and its reaction, affirms the power of those bonds.

Silver Line Theatre Exchange proudly presents Art by Yasmina Reza, directed by Constance Swain. Our Professional Performance Series connects working artists with production opportunities and introduces our local community to incredible professional talent available in regional theatre.
