July 8 – July 31

A Comedy of Artistic Perceptions

Marc, Serge, & Yvan are long-time friends. But when Serge drops a fortune on a piece of modern art, his friends’ surprising reactions touch off a series of personal confrontations that threaten their friendship. This intelligent, rapid-fire comedy, sparkling with verbal wit, explores the power of art to engage the imagination and the enduring bonds of friendship in the face of…the ridiculous. 

French playwright Yasmina Reza won the 1997 Olivier Award and the 1998 Tony Award for Art, which has been produced worldwide and translated into over 30 languages. 

“…Reza’s script is an actor’s playground in the most delightful sense of the word.”Venus Zarris, Chicago Stage Review
