Tony Award winner for Best Play and Olivier Award winner for Best Comedy. How much would you pay for a painting with nothing on it? Would it be art? Marc's best friend Serge has just bought a very expensive – and very white - painting. To Marc, the painting is a joke, and as battle lines are drawn, old friends use it to settle scores. With friendships hanging in the balance, the question becomes: how much is a painting worth? “A nonstop cross-fire of crackling language (and) serious issues of life and art…sounds like a marriage of Molière and Woody Allen,” writes Newsweek. A full-cast production featuring: Bob Balaban, Brian Cox, Jeff Perry
