Serge has bought a modern painting for a huge sum of money. Marc hates it and cannot believe that a friend of his could possibly want such a work. Yvan attempts, unsuccessfully, to placate both sides. If your friendship is based on tacit mutual agreement what happens when one person does something completely different and unexpected? The question is: Are you who you think you are or are you who your friends think you are?

Art, winner of the Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy of the Year received its British première at Wyndham’s Theatre, London, in 1994 starring Albert Finney, Tom Courtenay and Ken Stott.
