Are you who you think you are? Or are you who your friends think you are?  


Taiwan's Godot Theatre Company considers the beauty and savagery of friendship in ART, a humorous and thought-provoking satirical play that has been captivating audiences and critics alike. 


Money is no object for the man who splurges on a piece of modern art. But this extravagant purchase triggers bewilderment—resentment even!—in his friend who cannot believe that anyone would even want such a thing. A mutual friend intervenes, attempting to soothe and placate, failing tragically and hilariously. The trio’s longstanding and unexpectedly fragile friendship is put to a treacherous test that challenges the strength of their bond. 


ART, by French playwright Yasmina Reza, is a woman’s keen observation on the complexities of friendship between men. The intricacies and complexities of human nature are put on stark display in this brightly brilliant and critically acclaimed play, which has won numerous awards in London and New York, making it Reza’s best-known work. 


Following the successful run of 2018’s Tuesdays with Morrie and 2019’s Love ya Mom! at Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, Godot Theatre Company returns with another widely acclaimed play ART, starring well-loved celebrities Pu Hsueh-Liang, Chu Chung Heng and Tseng Kuo Chen and directed by Godot Theatre Company's Artistic Director Liang Chi-Ming. After a tour of six cities in Taiwan to rave reviews in 2022, now they present ART at Huayi – Chinese Festival of Arts.
