City Circle Theatre Company's new traveling branch, Circle's Edge, will present its inaugural production later this month in Coralville. Performances of RED will take place February 23–25 and March 1–3 at Brush and Barrel, located in the Clock Tower Plaza.

About RED

John Logan's RED is a two-actor performance of intense storytelling. Set in the workshop of the American painter Mark Rothko, Circle's Edge brings this psychological drama to life in an intimate performance space seating only 35 audience members.

Intense, exciting, and the winner of seven Tony Awards, RED is a gripping bio-drama that explores the life of painter Mark Rothko and his relationship with his ambitious young assistant.

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 fascinating 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.
