Play: Red

Time: 7:30 pm-9:00 pm
Place: Howell Studio, 250 Old Keene Rd., Walpole, NH
Price: Donation $25 a ticket recommended
Ages: Older

Red, the story of the artist Mark Rothko, will be performed by the York Readers Theater. The event is sponsored by the Walpole Artisans and a donation of $25/ticket is recommended.

Because seating is limited to 60 people, please reserve your place as soon as possible by contacting David Howell at or 603-756-4154, or picking up your ticket(s) at the Walpole Artisans Cooperative, 52 Main Street Walpole, NH.

York Readers Theater presents thought-provoking plays that concern issues relevant to our lives here and now – e.g. aging, cultural diversity, or inter-generational conflict – but without the encumbrances of staging, sets and costumes. We invite the audience to discuss the issues or production values with the cast following the performance.

About “Red” and Mark Rothko: Winner of six Tony Awards in 2010, including best play and best actor (and best lighting, sound, and direction), “RED” explores the tortured genius of Mark Rothko, one of the greatest Abstract Expressionist painters of the 20th century (visit for a sampling of Rothko’s work).

Rothko’s most celebrated achievement was a series of murals for the Four Seasons Restaurant in Manhattan painted between 1958 and 1961, for which he was paid $35,000 (about $2 million in current value). But in the end he returned the money and kept the paintings. Why? The imagined events leading up to that decision are the subject of “RED.” Rothko, you see, wants to be understood. And that requires understanding the whole history of Western painting, and Nietzche and Freud and Jung and Shakespeare, just to cite a few of the cultural names that are not so much dropped as flung here. Ken, (Rothko’s assistant – the only other role in the play) is a fast learner and is soon giving as good as he gets.
