Presented by STAGED THEATRE COMPANY and Anywhere Festival.

An all-new version of the classic 1990s Tony, Olivier and Moliere Award winning play by Yasmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton.  Rarely seen in more intimate surroundings, this is the perfect way to see Natalia, Serge and Yvan, up close and personal, as they put their friendship on the line, all for the love (or otherwise!) of a white-on-white painting.

Or is Art what it is truly about? Art or friendship?  Art or control?  Art or relationships?  Or is it really about street art rescuing the noble abstract?

The cast consists of Mark Dunlop as Serge, Jessi Schmidt as Natalia and Tom Jermyn as Yvan, with direction by Nick Smith and production by Staged Theatre Company.

This performance is at THE INSTITUTE OF MODERN ART, Screening Room, Ground Floor, Judith Wright Arts Centre, 420 Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley, Brisbane, QLD 4006.
