Seann Walsh, Chris Harper and Aden Gillett will star in a new touring version of Yasmina Reza's award-winning play Art.

Directed by Iqbal Khan, the multi-award winning play (winner of Best Comedy at the Olivier Awards, Tony Awards and Moliere Awards), presented this time by Joshua Beaumont and Original Theatre, is described as "a razor sharp exploration of art, love and friendship that will stay with you long after the curtain falls".

First premiered in 1994, the plot of Art is described as follows: "A seemingly simple purchase of contemporary art - an all-white painting - ignites a hilarious debate amongst three close friends. What begins as a light-hearted discussion about art quickly descends into a riotous exploration of the blurred lines between art and reality."

The Autumn 2024 tour will visit Lighthouse Poole (29-31 Aug), Theatre Royal Bath (3-7 Sept), Norwich Theatre Royal (10-14 Sept), Mercury Theatre Colchester (17-21 Sept), Malvern Theatres (24-28 Sept), Devonshire Park Theatre, Eastbourne (30 Sept-5 Oct), Nottingham Theatre Royal (7-12 Oct), Belgrade Theatre, Coventry (15-19 Oct) and Sheffield Lyceum Theatre (22-26 Oct), with additional dates to be announced.

Seann Walsh will play Yvan, Chris Harper takes on the role of Serge and Aden Gillett will be Marc in the 80 minute play.
