‘Art’

The Old Vic

Artistic Director Matthew Warchus reunites the original creative team of Yasmina Reza’s Olivier, Tony and Moliere award-winning play Art at The Old Vic, celebrating the twentieth anniversary of one of the most acclaimed plays of recent times.

Artistic Director Matthew Warchus reunites the original creative team of Yasmina Reza’s Olivier, Tony and Moliere award-winning play ‘Art’ at The Old Vic, celebrating the twentieth anniversary of one of the most acclaimed plays of recent times.

A triumphant philosophical drama which soon transformed into something of a cultural phenomenon, ‘Art’ follows three old friends, Serge (the award-winning comedian Tim Key), Marc (Paul Ritter) and Yvan (the Olivier Award-winning Rufus Sewell), as the purchase of a particularly abstract painting causes them to dispute its classification as – and the very definition of – art itself.

Premiering in London twenty years ago to effusive acclaim from critics and audiences alike, ‘Art’ is a landmark study of friendship, prejudice and tolerance.
