How much would you pay for a white painting? Would it matter who the painter was? Would it be…art?
‘ART’ is a play by Yasmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton, and directed by Derek Baxter. In ‘ART,’ one of Marc’s best friends, Serge (David the Day), just bought a very expensive painting. It’s about five feet by four feet, all white with white diagonal lines. To Marc (Jeremiah Murzinsky), the painting is a joke, but Serge insists Marc doesn’t have the proper standard to judge the work. Another friend, Yvan (Steven C. Fox), though burdened with his own problems, allows himself to be pulled into this disagreement. Eager to please, Yvan tells Serge he likes the painting. Lines are drawn and these old friends square off over the canvas, using it as an excuse to relentlessly batter one another over various failures.
