A bilingual English/German edition
Rothko, as depicted by Friesen, is a consumed artist, compelled by forces unseen and perhaps unknown; the artist is driven at a pace to create that defies both logic and sensibility. It, the play, reaches into its audience and provides it with an opportunity to contemplate the very essence of life itself, especially that life lived by an artist who knows his calling and strives to achieve it in spite of the constraints that seek to deter him.
This play is laced with cleverness, wit, and understanding. One leaves a reading or production of Rothko with a clear and honest appreciation for the trials and conflicts that harass the artist and attempt to deter him from his task.
