David Pugh & Dafydd Rogers present the Old Vic Production of ART written by Yasmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton.
ART is a phenomenon and one of the most successful plays ever. Having opened in 1996, it took both the West End and Broadway by storm, won Olivier, Tony, Moliere and every other major theatre award, and has been packing in audiences worldwide for more than twenty years.
When Serge spends an extortionate amount of money on an all white modernist painting, his close friends Marc and Yvan are baffled. But does their violent reactions to this provocative canvas mirror more dangerous antagonisms towards each other? Yasmina Reza’s dazzling study of friendship, prejudice and tolerance is a masterpiece.
The all-star cast features Nigel Havers whose numerous credits include The Charmer, Don’t Wait Up and Downton Abbey on television; he was BAFTA nominated for his role in the Academy Award-winning film Chariots of Fire; and theatre credits include The Importance of Being Earnest, Rebecca and Single Spies.
Olivier Award-winning Denis Lawson is known for his roles as John Jarndyce in the BBC’s adaptation of Bleak House, as Gordon Urquhart in the film Local Hero, as DI Steve McAndrew in BBC 1’s New Tricks, and as Wedge Antilles in the original Star Wars trilogy. His West End credits include La Cage Aux Folles and Oleanna.
Stephen Tompkinson’s television credits include Drop the Dead Donkey, Ballykissangel, Grafters, Wild at Heart, DCI Banks and he starred in the film Brassed Off.He won the 1994 British Comedy Award for Best TV Comedy Actor. His stage credits range from Spamalot to Tartuffe.
