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.

Grandage directs this first ever UK revival since directing the world premiere at the Donmar Warehouse in 2009.  Molina reprises his critically acclaimed performance.

“Enoch gives a wonderful performance... Molina's performance as Rothko is simply stunning.”

Broadway World (other reviewers)

“Perfect. It is a play of fire and poetry, laughter and rage. An imagined colloquy with its own kind of genius.”

Libby Purves (TheatreCat, Times)

“Enshrines a towering performance from Molina... One of the few plays that offers a plausible portrait of an artist at work.”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Molina: both the feverish energy and the gravitas to be wholly plausible as this brilliant and titanically self-absorbed figure.”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)

“Has lost none of its power... Grandage’s production is just magnificent.”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“Exhilarating... A fascinating biographical footnote... pivots into something more profound and probing.”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Grandage's superlative staging... brings home the overwhelming physical presence of great pictures and the day-to-day labour.”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“Superbly revived... A tense and occasionally ferocious exploration of the price of making art, in every sense.”

Mark Shenton (The Stage, London Theatre, Express)

“Grandage’s production makes a strong case for the exhilarating seriousness of the drama. Molina is as tremendous now as he was.”

Susannah Clapp (The Observer)

“Taut revival of the play about Mark Rothko that highlights its limitations as well as its strengths.”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)
