ART - Lighthouse Poole, Thursday 29 - Saturday 31 August. Cast announced

Thursday, May 16, 2024

Lighthouse Poole is delighted to welcome the premiere performances of the first non-replica revival of Yasmina Reza’s Tony and Olivier Award-winning comedy ART this summer when it plays a three-night run from Thursday 29 to Saturday 31 August.


With award-winning comedian Seann Walsh, Chris Harper (Call the Midwife, Coronation Street) and Aden Gillett (The Crown, The House of Elliot), Iqbal Khan (East is East, National Theatre and Othello, RSC) directs this brand-new production of Yasmina Reza's fiendishly clever and hilariously funny play on tour.


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


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. 


Josh Beaumont & Original Theatre present ART a comedy by Yasmina Reza translated by Christopher Hampton directed by Iqbal Khan starring Seann Walsh, Chris Harper, Aden Gillett

THURSDAY 29 – SATURDAY 31 AUGUST | 7.45pm, (Sat mat 2.30pm) (THEATRE)
