Another nice departure for us after swinging sixties satire, Jewish neurosis and good ole northern humour - Art was an intelligent, often philosophical exploration of friendship.  It was also very funny, although the playwright, Yasmina Reza, was famously shocked when the show premiered and she heard so much laughter ... She didn't see it as a comedy. 

 

The show was praised for its perfect casting and chemistry.  If it wasn't supposed to be a comedy then we apologise to Reza because our audiences we uproarious in their laughter. 

 

Personally, it was a privilege to be a part of and to preform in a play that had featured so many talented trios on the Westend - Alan Alda, Alfred Molina, Tom Courtenay, Ken Stott, Albert Finney and The League of Gentlemen.
