Art by Yasmina RezaPlay written by acclaimed French playwright Yasmina Reza (also author of God of Carnage)

Directed by dianne k. webb

Watch the stories of life unfold on stage, of longtime friendships, of family dynamics, of professional successes and personal disappointments, as Shunya Theatre presents Art, a sardonic and witty comedy penned by renowned and award-winning French playwright, Yasmina Reza.  Three longtime male friends explore their friendship post college and present day adulthood as they approach their forties. The white canvas of modern art serves as the catalyst and backdrop for age old questions of identity, acceptance, and the contours of defining and lasting friendships.  Serge, the modernist and yearning new art collector. Marc, the classicist and foe of pretension. And Yvan, the humanist and reconciler of all. And one white canvas of art—a white painting, five foot by four, with some faint yet discernible fine white, diagonal lines.
