What's it about?

For one production only, NFP are excited to be returning to their old home, New Forest Arts Centre, at the end of February 2024 and will be performing Art by Yasmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton. (All other productions are still at the excellent Ballard School.)
The play is a comedy and has won several awards.

How much would you pay for a white painting? Would it matter who the painter was? Would it be art? One of Marc’s best friends, Serge, has just bought a very expensive painting. To Marc, the painting is a joke, but Serge insists Marc doesn’t have the proper standard to judge the work. Another friend, Yvan, allows himself to be pulled into this disagreement which escalates to often hilarious proportions…
