Are you my good friend? Are you telling me what I expect to hear? What are you talking about? Do I trust you? How many friends do you have? Who’s a better friend? What do you do for a living? How good are you at your job? Why are you my friend? Do we think the same? How much do you earn? Are you real, my friend? Who’s right my friend? What’s the colour of friendship? Is Friendship art? Or is the art of friendship – nature? Because of it’s brilliant scripting and masterful work of the Serbian actors, you’ll always want additional tickets for Art.
