MGC Presents: Red

Under the watchful gaze of his young assistant, and the threatening presence of a new generation of artists, Mark Rothko takes on his greatest challenge yet: to create a definitive work for an extraordinary setting.

Based on the original Donmar Warehouse production, this new production of Red is the first ever UK revival since MGC Artistic Director Michael Grandage directed the premier in 2009. The production went on to win six Tony Awards including Best Play.

Award-winning stage and screen actor Alfred Molina reprises his critically acclaimed performance as the American abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko. He is joined by rising star Alfred Enoch, of US television drama series How to Get Away With Murder, as his assistant Ken.

Red reunites John Logan and Michael Grandage following Peter and Alice with Judi Dench and Ben Whishaw, which formed part of MGC’s inaugural season in the West End in 2013, and their feature film Genius.
