God of Carnage
The all-too-thin veneer of tolerance and civility is first frayed and then comically shredded when two sets of parents attempt to discuss an altercation between their sons in Yasmina Reza's God of Carnage, the Hampton Theatre Company's final production of the 2013-2014 season, running through Sunday at the Quogue Community Hall.

RED by John Logan and directed by Stephen Hamilton is in production at Guild Hall in East Hampton. Set in 1958, this two-person drama focuses on master abstract expressionist Mark Rothko who has been commissioned to create a series of murals for the Four Seasons Restaurant scheduled to open in the architecturally revered new Seagram Building.
The play takes place over two years as Rothko works feverishly in his Bowery studio with his young assistant Ken. The two passionately debate the nature of art and why it matters. Raw and provocative, RED is a searing portrait of an artist whose ambition, vulnerability and integrity collide. Seating is limited to 75 as the audience sits on the stage.
The show will run through June 8. Visit www.guildhall.org.
