By Yasmina Reza
“An impeccably tailored piece of work” – The New York Times
Serge has purchased a very expensive modern work of art: a five-feet-by-four-feet painting of white diagonal lines on a white canvas, Marc cannot believe that a friend of his could possibly spend so much money on such a piece, and Yvan wants everyone to get along. Their friendships are tested as they wonder, “are you who you think you are, or are you who your friends think you are?”
