Overview

Rothko, Red and amazing art.
Maldon-based theatre company, Hobo Playhouse is excited to present John Logan’s brilliant art play, RED, at the Engine Room in Bendigo in August.
RED is a compelling account of one of the greatest artists of the 20th Century, Mark Rothko. 
Viewed through the lens of his youthful new assistant, Ken, we witness Rothko at the pinnacle of his creativity.
As Ken and Rothko paint, they challenge each Redother 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. 
The cast features two of the best actors in the region, Andrew Le Clercq who plays Rothko and Peter Bevin as Ken.
Put these two outstanding actors together on stage in a powerful play like RED and the result is electric. 
RED is directed by Rob Jorritsma, who has an absolute passion for this play, and is well-known in the local area for his outstanding work with Castlemaine Theatre Company.
The original production of RED won six Tony Awards (2010) including Best Production and Best Direction.
Hobo Playhouse is a local theatre company that focuses on plays with a social realism theme.
Born five years ago, the company continues to grow in membership and audience numbers having performed to sell-out crowds in its first four years.
RED will be performed at The Engine Room, 58 View St, Bendigo on August 17, 23 and 24 at 8pm and on Sunday, August 18 and 25 at 2pm.
Tickets: $35 adults and $32 concession.
