Serge has bought a modern painting for a huge sum of money. Marc hates it and cannot believe that a friend of his could possibly want such a work. Yvan attempts, unsuccessfully, to placate both sides. Three friends and a white painting…

Proscenium presents Yasmina Reza’s dazzling comedy, which received the Moliere Award for Best Play when it first opened in 1994. It ran for 18 months at the Comedie des Champs-Elysees, Paris, before the English translation by Christopher Hampton opened at Wyndham’s Theatre in London in October 1996. It played there for 8 years straight, and became an international hit. 

Numerous revivals have included actors such as Albert Finney, Tom Courtney, Ken Stott, Stephen Tompkinson, Mark Gatiss and Alfred Molina. Awards for the play include Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, Tony Award for Best Play, and Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy.

The ticket price includes a programme, available on your way in.
