In a unique conceit, Albee posits a dialogue between a woman at the end of life and two versions of her younger self.
The different ages of one’s life, it seems, don’t always see eye to eye,
and a life’s reflections are viewed from distinctly different and differing vantage points.

Our Thirteenth Season
2017–2018
Retrospective

 

Celia, A Slave
September 2017

While set in the past, this unflinching, brutally honest play is relevant to many of the issues facing our nation to this day.
—Andrew Brown, Arizona Public Media

Images and thoughts from Celia keep tapping on my shoulder unexpectedly since Friday.
—Christopher Wendel, Audience Member

Incredible, important, and heart breaking.
—Chrysta Faye, Audience Member

Friends, do something for your soul and go see Celia, A Slave,
a most-timely and remarkable production by the The Rogue Theatre,
written by our very own Barbara Seyda, a brilliant genius.
Actors are fully embodied and incredible, choreography by Barbea Williams is magic,
music by Jake Sorgen and Vicki Brown lifts the theatre,
and incredible direction and staging by Cynthia Meier brings to life the cruelty and grace of a horrific era.
A story set in 1855 Missouri could not have more relevance to every year that followed, including this one.
Art is what we need. Go see it.
—Kimi Eisele, Audience Member

 

Producer Andrew Brown of Arizona Public Meida has created a nine-minute video on Celia, A Slave,
with footage from two rehearsals and interviews with actors and the director.

Bach at Leipzig
November 2017

A pure joy to watch.
—Arizona Daily Star

Theatre magic!
—Joyce Smith, Audience Member

Brilliant.
—Kathleen Schwartzman, Audience Member

A fun and memorable and provocative play.
Thank you. Vivid, lovely costumes.
Your button sewing division deserves some time off.
—Greg Hart, Audience Member

It was a terrific play produced brilliantly.
—Richard & Linda Miller, Audience Members

The Grapes of Wrath
January 2018

You broke my heart; you mended my heart. Thank you so much for one of the most memorable evenings of my life.
—Diane Wilson, Audience Member

I found the January 14 performance to be the best play at The Rogue I have ever attended. The many plots within the plot were so well played by a talented cast. The tension kept building. The last few minutes of the play had me on the edge of my seat.
—Wayne Beal, Audience Member

The Grapes of Wrath is a fine example of one of the things that The Rogue does well: an intelligently conceived and skillfully realized adaptation of a literary classic. This company is the jewel in Tucson's theatrical crown: it deserves your enthusiastic support.
—Bill Epstein, Tucson Sentinel

Thank you for a powerful performance. The last scene left me stunned--a feeling that I think was shared across the audience. It took me a while before I could clap—so much to digest and reflect upon.
—Valerie Miller, Audience Member
