The Rogue reaffirms my belief in the transformational power of fine literature,
and the ability of an audience to embrace it.
I’m still reeling.

Journey to the West

A Chinese epic from the 16th century brought to life by the acclaimed Mary Zimmerman: the monk Tripitaka’s 17-year journey to India to receive scrolls of wisdom from the Buddha. He is accompanied on this odyssey by the immortals Monkey, Pig, and a reformed cannibal as they experience episodes of hardship and enlightenment. A great and canonical work of the East rendered in a fanciful yet profound style.

Directed by Cynthia Meier

Thursdays through Sundays, September 6 –23, 2012

Jez Butterworth’s The Night Heron

PRODUCTION SPONSORS: JOHN & JOYCE AMBRUSTER
Actors and musicians are supported in part by generous gifts from John & Joyce Ambruster, Paul Barby, Norma Davenport, Karen DeLay & Bill Sandel and Dave Lewis.

The sighting of a rare bird has brought attention to the remote fens of England where two men, recently unemployed and being blackmailed for a horrible secret, struggle to survive in a broken cabin. One of them, Wattmore, is recreating an iconostasis, a vast painting of saints, which dominates the stage as both men, their lodger, and those they are running from all seek their own kind of salvation.
Contains adult themes and nudity.

Directed by Bryan Rafael Falcón

Thursdays through Sundays, November 1–18, 2012

Actors and musicians are supported in part by generous gifts from Warren & Ellen Bodow, Peter & Meg Hovell, GBL Family Fund, Dave Lewis, Katharina Phillips & Sheldon Trubactch, Jan Stewart, Lorine Sweeney, Judy & Ward Wallingford and an anonymous donor.
Mother Courage

In what many regard as Brecht’s masterpiece, Mother Courage profiteers from a constant state of war, as she loses her children to it one by one. Her cynical manipulation of the miseries of others robs her of her title, and at the play’s end she is mother to no one. Written in a burst of energy after the invasion of Poland, it is one of our principal ruminations on the nature of war.

Directed by Joseph McGrath

Thursdays through Sundays, January 10 –27, 2013

Kafka’s Monkey by Franz Kafka, adapted by Colin Teevan
Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka, adapted by Cynthia Meier

PRODUCTION SPONSORS: NILS & ANN HASSELMO
Actors and musicians are supported in part by generous gifts from Warren & Ellen Bodow, Carol Elliott, Pat & John Hemann, Dave Lewis and Judy & Ward Wallingford.

Two parables about the modern world. In Kafka’s Monkey, a chimpanzee reveals to us what it is to be human. In Metamorphosis, a young man awakes to discover that he has become an enormous insect and struggles to adjust to his new existence.

Kafka’s Monkey directed by Joseph McGrath
Metamorphosis directed by Cynthia Meier

Kafka

 

William Shakespeare’s Richard III

PRODUCTION SPONSORS: JOAN FOREHAND AND DAN GILMORE
Actors and musicians are supported in part by generous gifts from Ted & Celia Brandt, Lillian Fisher, Dave Lewis, Nancy Reeder and Jan Stewart.

Richard III

Shakespeare’s most charming monster manipulates and murders his way to the throne of England, seducing the audience as he ensnares his victims. While Richard’s deformities encase a hideous heart, the play’s language is among the most graceful in the Shakespearean canon.

Directed by Cynthia Meier

Thursdays through Sundays, April 25–May 12, 2013

The Rogue continues to deepen our questions about what it is to be human.
