Starring award-winning/nominated actors: Dave Moskin, David Wurawa & David Rodriguez-Yanez Directed by Joanna Godwin-Seidl The award-winning, popular comedy, raises questions about art and friendship. It concerns three long-time friends, Serge, Marc, and Yvan. Serge, indulging his penchant for modern art, buys a large, expensive, completely white painting. Marc is horrified, and their relationship suffers considerable strain as a result of their differing opinions about what constitutes "art". Yvan, caught in the middle of the conflict, tries to please and mollify both of them. The question is: Are you who you think you are or are you who your friends think you are? After the sell out success of "The Last Five Years" we return to this wonderful location in the heart of the 15th District, a converted old school. Downstairs you are invited to sip drinks at a lovely bar with a garden area for warm summer evenings. Upstairs the show will take place in a large atelier space with long, spacious windows; in a wide, airy room. The theatre will be in the round.

This dark comedy, translated from the French, in sparkling form, explores its themes through a rift between friends."-"-Financial Times" # It is probably the most sustained attack on modernism yet seen on the British stage, and it represents a stern challenge to the brilliant success story of British contemporary art. "The Guardian" # Not only brings to the stage a topical debate, it makes it invigorating, touching and finally disturbing. This dark comedy, translated from the French, in sparkling form, explores its themes through a rift between friends. "Financial Times" # A remarkably wise, witty and intelligent comedy . . . has touched a universal nerve. "The Times" # Chic, short, and wickedly, perceptively funny, it's the perfect West End play.
