Red at Creekside Theatre May 23 and 24

Fred Skeleton Theatre Company presents the 'intellectually riveting' play, Red, at Creekside Theatre in Lake Country.

Award-winning Fred Skeleton returns with an “intense and exciting study in artist appreciation, a portrait of an angry and brilliant mind”.

“There is only one thing I fear in life, my friend… One day the black will swallow the red.”

“What do you see?” Famed abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko asks his young assistant, Ken, the loaded question.

What’s art? And who gets to decide anyway?

It’s 1958, and Rothko has just been offered the biggest commission in the history of modern art. He and Ken work feverishly in his New York studio—until Ken begins to realize his answers to those fundamental questions about art are very different than his mentor’s.

Winner of six Tony Awards, this sizzling 90-minute drama is one of the most intellectually riveting shows to recently hit Broadway.

Two fund raising performances of the Okanagan Zone’s winning play are Friday May 23 and Saturday May 24.

Show time is 7:30 p.m.
