× This emotional and dynamic play delves into the work of Mark Rothko and art itself. Centered around Rothko at the height of his career, the audience is introduced to his youthful new assistant, Ken, and we witness Rothko struggling through the creation of a series of large paintings at the pinnacle of his creativity. As Mark and his helper paint, they challenge each other to ask big questions about art: what it takes to create it and what its role should be in the world. Set in the 1950s, and based on a series of real events, Red takes a compelling look at the ever- changing relationship between an artist and his creations.

WICA’s 100th Theatre Series production.

Written by John Logan, directed by Vito Zingarelli.
