This winner of the 1978 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, which originally starred Jessica Tandy and Hume Cronyn and was later revived with Julie Harris and Charles Durning, uses a card game as a metaphor for life. Weller Martin is playing solitaire on the porch of a seedy nursing home. Enter Fonsia Dorsey, a prim, self righteous lady. They discover they both dislike the home and enjoy gin rummy, so they begin to play and to reveal intimate details of their lives. What follows is a witty and compelling exploration of love, loss, bitterness, and desire.

Described by Newsweek as sounding “like a marriage of Moliere and Woody Allen,” Art won the 1998 Tony Award for Best Play and the 1996 Olivier Award for Best Comedy. Navigating the complexities of aesthetics, maturity, and evolving friendships, Art concerns three long-time friends, Serge, Marc, and Yvan. Serge, indulging his penchant for modern art, buys a large, expensive, completely white painting. Marc is horrified, and their friendship is challenged as a result of their differing opinions about what constitutes “art.” Yvan, caught in the middle of the conflict, tries to please and mollify them both to preserve the friendship.
