In “Art,” an all-white painting pits three old friends against one another, questioning the true meaning of art, friendship and individuality. One of Marc’s best friends, Serge, has just bought a very expensive painting. It’s all white with white diagonal lines. These old friends square off over the canvas, using it as an excuse to batter one another over various failures. This piece was winner of the 1998 Tony Award for Best Play.
