Winner of the 1998 Tony Award for Best Play. “My friend Serge has bought a painting … a white painting with white lines.” Is such a purchase absurd or the height of fashion? This loaded question shakes the foundation of a lifelong friendship. Marc, Serge, and Yvan’s arguments over the painting spiral from lofty artistic theory to the kind of sharp, personal attacks only old friends can get away with. This modern masterpiece of comedic satire peers through the lens of artistic interpretation of male friendship. How much honesty, “taste,” and individuality can one friendship endure? Does ‘art’ truly lie within the madness?
