HCC Actors Guild Present Red
HCC Actors Guild will present Red by John Logan June 1-3 and 8-10 in the Black Box Theater located in Joppa Hall on the Harford Community College campus. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 8 PM; Sunday shows start at 3 PM. This show features adult themes and language.
Master abstract expressionist Mark Rothko has just landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art: a series of murals for New York’s famed Four Seasons Restaurant. In the two years that follow, Rothko works feverishly with his young assistant, Ken, in his studio on the Bowery. But when Ken gains the confidence to challenge him, Rothko faces the agonizing possibility that his crowning achievement could also become his undoing. Raw and provocative, Red is a searing portrait of an artist’s ambition and vulnerability as he tries to create a definitive work for an extraordinary setting.

Red was the winner of the 2010 Tony Award. “Intense and exciting . . . a study in artist appreciation, a portrait of an angry and brilliant mind that asks you to feel the shape and texture of thoughts . . . RED captures the dynamic relationship between an artist and his creations.” —NY Times
