A best friend acting stupid

How would you feel about your best friend if he or she suddenly did something colossally stupid?

It happens in this Tony Award-winning dark comedy, ART (trailer), that focuses on the meaning of friendship.

When Serge buys an apparently pure white canvas by a fashionable artist for a lot of money his old mate, Marc, thinks it’s a piece of pretentious rubbish.
Yvan, their mutual friend, tries to reconcile but only succeeds in antagonising both of them.

Art raises one of drama’s eternal questions: how much truth and honesty human beings can stand?
In a surprising and funny way, it brings into play issues of friendship, loyalty and the difficulty and value of telling the truth.
