‘There is only one thing I fear in life, my friend… One day the black will swallow the 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.
A moving and compelling account of one of the greatest artists of the 20th century whose struggle to accept his growing riches and praise became his ultimate undoing..
Nominated for 7 Olivier Awards (2009) and winner of six Tony Awards 2010 including Best New Play.

    ROTHKO: Do you aspire?
    KEN: Yes.
    ROTHKO: To what? To what do you aspire?
    KEN: I want to be a painter so I guess I aspire to…painting.
    ROTHKO: Then those clothes won’t do. We work here. Hang up your jacket outside. I appreciate you put on your Sunday clothes to impress me, it’s poignant really, touches me, but it’s ridiculous. We work hard here; this isn’t a goddamn Old World salon with tea cakes and lemonade. Go hang up your jacket outside.
