About the Plays
Red takes an intimate look at abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko as he creates murals for the famous Four Seasons Restaurant. The play follows Rothko and his assistant Ken as they work to complete this important commission, but as Ken begins to challenge his employer’s ideology and motivations, Rothko begins to wonder if his generation of art will be “stomped to death” as he helped “stomp” out the Cubists who came before him.
Dancing at Lughnasa, a play by Brian Friel, focuses on the lives of the five Mundy sisters in their small village of Ballybeg in 1930s Ireland. From the approach of the Industrial Revolution on their rural way of life, to the return of their brother from his missionary work in Uganda, the sisters find their simple lives in Donegal faced with sudden changes that will challenge not only their everyday way of life, but also the love they share for one another.
