'Art' by Yasmina Reza
Translated by Christopher Hampton
Directed by Peter James Haworth
How would you feel about your best friend if he suddenly did something so colossally stupid, it made you doubt the very basis of the friendship? It happens in Yasmina Reza's monster international hit, "Art". When an art lover buys what is in essence a pure white painting for a horse-choking sum, his best friend goes ballistic. Yet a third friend gets squeezed in the middle. Questions about the meaning of strange modern art and strange modern friendships--and how they’re sometimes not all that different--fly thick in the limelight.
'Art' ran at The Gladstone Theatre May 23 - June 8, 2014
