Yasmina Reza’s play Art is coming soon to Gateway Theatre.

The French playwright’s 1994 Tony Award-winning black comedy, translated by Christopher Hampton, focuses on the meaning of art and the meaning of friendship. It runs Feb. 5 to 22 at Gateway Theatre.

Art lover Serge buys what is essentially a plain white painting for a handsome sum, setting off a bomb in his circle of friends. The play questions the meaning of modern art and modern friendships, and how they may not be that different.

Gateway’s production of the 70-minute play is directed by Stephen Drover and stars Michael Kopsa, Hiro Kanagawa and Haig Sutherland.

Tickets, $30 to $49, at gatewaytheatre.com or 604-270-1812.
