Staged by the Hong Kong Repertory Theatre company, the play is directed by distinguished director Fung Wai Hang and will see sparks flying between co-stars Ko Hon Man and Yau Ting Fai.
Red is a portrait of the real-life artist Mark Rothko, depicting his conversations with a young assistant called Ken after agreeing to create murals for the exclusive Four Seasons restaurant.
Ken - who represents a new generation of artists - questions Rothko on his motives for taking on the project, highlighting powerful themes relating to the relationship between art and commerce.
The play was written by John Logan - also known for his screenplays for acclaimed movies such as Gladiator, The Aviator and Hugo - and won the 2010 Tony Award for best play.
Hong Kong Repertory Theatre's version of Red - which has been translated into Cantonese - will be performed at 19:45 local time on July 6th to 8th and July 10th to 15th, with matinees at 14:45 on July 8th and 15th.
Tickets range in price between HK$130 and HK$260 (£10.70 and £21.40).
