This season, OnStage Uxbridge and Director Andy Fiddes are offering up something a little different from the repertoire normally seen at small Canadian theatres. A wonderful play named RED – which – for those who keep tabs – is a 2010 Tony Award winner, and up until this year has played only in large urban venues. Until this Fall one had to travel afar to see RED. A full purse or a wallet full of plastic would likely be necessary – RED has been presented in Chicago, Vancouver, London – well you get the idea- in big expensive cities.
RED is a compact, serious, highly concentrated play and it deals with an incident in the life of Mark Rothko one of the pioneers of American abstract expressionist painting in the 1950s. The cast is small – two actors only – allowing for a wonderful counterpoint and dramatic tension which starts early in the play and continues unabated until the very end.
RED is opening at the Music Hall Thursday Nov 28th, 29th & 30th (Fri also has a student matinee) and Thurs Dec 5th, 6th & 7th. (Sat Dec 7th also has 3:00pm matinee). All evening shows start 8:00pm. Think about coming to the Gala Friday Dec 6th 6:30.
Tickets can be purchased on line at www.onstageuxbridge.com or the Little Acorn in Uxbridge. If you need more information call Anne Wilde on the Onstage Uxbridge tel. 905-904-0895.
