Located in a very nice park. Bring comfortable shoes and leave time to walk around to enjoy the wooded park.

I'm surprised this won an award. I thought the dialogue was atrocious! Three self centered people make for an awful play. It was like Seinfeld, all self centered people with no humor.

Description

Are your friendships based on tacit mutual agreements? If so, what happens when one person does something completely different and unexpected? Serge has bought a modern painting for a huge sum of money. Marc hates it and can’t believe his friend could possibly want such a work. Yvan attempts, unsuccessfully, to placate both sides. The question is: Are you who you think you are or are you who your friends think you are? The tension and comedy build to an outrageous climax that leaves these three old friends with some very difficult decisions to make.

Art received the Moliere Award for Best Play, Best Production, and Best Author; the London Evening Standard award for Best Comedy; and the Tony Award for Best Play.
