translation by Christopher Hampton

 A sophisticated, philosophical French comedy ...

Marc cannot believe that his friend Serge has bought a hugely expensive modern painting - seemingly entirely white - and this ignites a quarrel about Life, Art, Values & Friendship. The play's third character, a friend of them both, tries to mediate with hilarious consequences.

The question is - Are you who you think you are, or are you who your friends think you are?

By Derek Webb

 Three women, Carol, Ann and Judy, are having a reunion in a wine bar one evening. It's the first time they've been together since leaving school. The play opens as they arrive back, the worse for drink, at Carol's flat - a very upmarket warehouse conversion. Carol is keen to impress the others. She is married to a successful publisher. What she fails to disclose is that he is a publisher of porn magazines. Judy is married with a young child and Ann is still single, but happy working in a dress shop. As their talk continues, and more drink is consumed, they begin to disclose more and more about their private lives. And when Carol suggests playing a kind of truth game, secrets they have kept hidden for years emerge with disastrous consequences.
