The Michael Grandage Company has announced that its production of John Logan's Red, starring Alfred Molina and Alfred Enoch will be screened in cinemas across the UK and North America.

Filmed at Wyndham's Theatre, where the show runs until 28 July, tickets for the 7 November screening go on sale from 15 August.

On the announcement, director Michael Grandage said: "I am delighted that the original production of Red will be screened worldwide for all to see as part of MGC's commitment to reach as wide an audience as possible.

"It has enjoyed a long life that has included the Donmar, Broadway, LA and finally the West End, so it is particularly wonderful that it will be broadcast in cinemas later this year with Alfred Molina and Alfred Enoch on stage at the Wyndham's Theatre."

The play first premiered at the Donmar Warehouse in 2009 before transferring to Broadway and winning six Tony Awards. The Wyndham's production stars Molina as the painter Mark Rothko and Enoch as his assistant Ken.
