Trainwreck Productions presents
RED by John Logan
Voices from the Warehouse, 10th and Jackson
Wednesday & Thursday, September 24 & 25
7:30 p.m. (doors/speakeasy open at 7:00 p.m.)
$10 at the door

“What do you see?” Famed abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko asks his young assistant, Ken, the loaded question. What’s art? And who gets to decide anyway? It’s 1958, and Rothko has just been offered the biggest commission in the history of modern art. He and Ken work feverishly in his New York studio until Ken begins to realize his answers to those fundamental questions about art are very different than his mentor’s. Winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Play, this sizzling 90-minute drama is one of the most intellectually riveting shows to recently hit Broadway. Doug Donald, Loras College Director of Theatre, as Rothko and Ryan Decker, TWP Artistic Director, as Ken. Michelle Blanchard directs.

Voices X, the tenth anniversary of the month-long gallery exhibit and arts programs, and the warehouse itself is a perfect setting for this story to unfold. As the characters grapple with art, they too struggle to create a monumental work for an extraordinary setting.

Trainwreck Productions presents the play “No Exit”

NoExitFriday & Saturday, January 17 & 18
7:00p.m. at the Dubuque Bike Coop (2206 Central Ave.)

Dubuque, Trainwreck Productions presents the play No Exit by Jean-Paul Sartre, translated by Paul Bowles, and directed by Alex McCarthy. Three strangers are locked up together for eternity in one hideous room in hell. The windows are bricked up, there are no mirrors, the electric lights never turn off, and there is no exit. Hell is not the rack and fire, but the burning humiliation of souls stripped by the cruel curiosity of the damned. Hell is other people. Admission is $5; seating is extremely limited.
