Seann Walsh, Chris Harper and Aden Gillett to star in award-winning play ART, with tour to visit Theatre Royal, Nottingham

A razor-sharp exploration of art, love and friendship that will stay with audiences long after the curtain falls is set for a brand-new production.

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 a the new tour of Yasmina Reza's fiendishly clever and hilarious play ART.

The tour will visit the Theatre Royal, Nottingham, from Monday, October 7, to Saturday, October 12.

ART is a multi-award-winning play — winner of Best Comedy at the Olivier Awards, Tony Awards and Moliere Awards — presented by Joshua Beaumont and Original Theatre.

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.

Set and lighting designer Ciaran Bagnall, composer and sound designer Max Pappenheim, associate director Olivia Millar-Ross, production manager Brian Watson, costume supervisor Nancy Surman and props supervisor Katie Balmforth complete the creative team behind the production.
