An early morning Sunday treat was listening to the OverDrive audio recording of ART. This award-winning play is about the breakdown of the long-standing friendship between three men when Serge buys a totally white painting for 2oo,000 euros. Marc is outraged at his extravagance for a picture of nothing , whilst Yvan’s attempts to placate them both only serves to aggravate the situation.
Their escalating disagreements are highly humorous and entertaining and raise questions about “What is art?” and “What is friendship?”.
For a very visual person, I did struggle slightly with recognising which of the three actors was speaking. However, the experience of being able to download the audio of such a high quality production to an MP3 player to play out loud was really excellent.
Enabling hubby and I to go to the theatre without the hassle of babysitters, and without even getting out of bed!
