What You'll Get
Of all the issues that have torn apart friendships -- small infidelities, big fat lies, unpaid loans and betrayed confidences -- who knew that modern art would prove to be the most divisive? In her comedic masterpiece Art, provocative playwright Yasmina Reza demonstrates that the question "What is art?" can be deceptively dangerous. The play focuses on three men whose friendship is tested when one of them buys an expensive modern painting. The artwork's unique "look" inspires vastly different reactions from each of the men, and sparks fly as they express their opinions. As the argument moves from aesthetics to something deeper, Art explores how friendships can be shaken up by the most unexpected events. Williams Street Rep presents this provocative, sophisticated and humorous work at Raue Center for the Arts in Crystal Lake.
