Marc feels shocked, upset and betrayed when he discovers that his good friend, Serge, has spent an absurd amount of money buying a large painting that is completely white. Caught in the crossfire, their friend Yvan (already on edge ahead of his impending marriage) tries to restore calm and order as the longstanding friendship between the three is severely put to the test.  


"Art" is a brilliantly observed and hilarious comedy about art and the nature and fragility of friendship. It was the winner of best new comedy at the Olivier Awards and the Evening Standard Awards and best play at the Tony Awards and the Molière Awards. 


Originally written in French by Yasmina Reza, this cracking translation by Christopher Hampton is considered a modern classic.

This production of "Art" is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.

In 2019 we moved to 
the Malthouse Theatre, Malthouse Road, Canterbury, CT2 7JA
