by Yasmina Reza
Translated by Christopher Hampton

Serge has bought a large, completely white painting for an extortionate sum of money. Marc hates the painting and cannot believe that a friend of his could possibly want such a modern piece. Yvan attempts, unsuccessfully, to placate both sides with hilarious consequences.


Classy, funny, entertaining and heart-warming, ART is a phenomenon and one of the most successful comedies ever.
