Nigel Havers, Denis Lawson and Stephen Tompkinson are to star in the UK and Ireland Tour of Yasmina Reza’s multi award-winning comedy Art. When Serge buys a large, expensive, completely white painting, his friend Marc is horrified and leads to a strained debate about what constitutes art

When Serge buys a large, expensive, completely white painting, his friend Marc is horrified and leads to a strained debate about what constitutes art. Caught in the middle, Yvan tries to calm them but what effect does this have on their friendship.

David Pugh said, “It is twenty years since Dafydd [Rogers] and I first produced the comedy masterpiece ART in the West End, and the original post-London tour played for 78 weeks.  This time, we want to break our own record; in fact, we want to play as many theatres as Sir Ken Dodd has played in his wonderful career, and with this marvellous cast, we think we have every chance!

Based on the original production by Matthew Warchus, ART will be directed by Ellie Jones, with design by Mark Thompson, lighting by Hugh Vanstone, sound design by Mic Pool, original music by Gary Yershon, fight direction by Terry King and casting by Sarah Bird CDG.


The ART UK Tour has now concluded.
