The Playwrights Foundation- See George Brant’s GROUNDED at the 2012 Bay Area Playwrights Festival

The Playwrights Foundation- See George Brant’s GROUNDED at the 2012 Bay Area Playwrights Festival

The coffee’s a-brewing, the copier’s a-cranking (rewrites), the studio’s a-buzzing: #BAPF 35 rehearsals are in full swing! While they are going at it, let’s zoom in on George Brant, and his play Grounded which will launch the 2012 Bay Area Playwrights Festival this Friday, July 20 at 8pm.

Winner of the 2012 Smith Prize, GROUNDED tells a captivating story of an F-16 fighter pilot who finds herself assigned to (wo)man a UAV Reaper over Afghanistan. Confronted with the challenge of fighting a war by day and being a wife and mother by night, her struggle to compartmentalize her existence becomes more and more difficult as her two realities become increasingly permeable…

“Perhaps it doesn’t come up the first rehearsal, or even the second. Perhaps you’ve distracted them with the research images… or the joke on page 12… But don’t kid yourself; you’ve written a one-person show, sooner or later the dreaded question will rear its head.” What question is that?

Read more about George’s thoughts on writing a one-person show and the question he dreads here on our blog. http://www.playwrightsfoundation.org

The Rogue Theatre- Back Home in Tucson After Trip to Bangalore India

The Rogue Theatre- Back Home in Tucson After Trip to Bangalore India

300 East University Boulevard, Tucson, AZ –

520-551-2053

http://www.TheRogueTheatre.org

We are back from our amazing adventure in India and have readjusted to life on this side of the globe. We were deeply touched by the people we met and the sights we saw. It was an honor to share our work with the artists and audiences at Jagriti Theatre, and we represented The Rogue with pride and dignity in Bangalore!

The work we did, the friendships we forged and the education we received in India was beyond our wildest expectations. In our three weeks in Bangalore, we made connections with fellow theatre artists and kindred spirits, and have already started planting seeds for future explorations.

In case you haven’t visited our travelogue yet, we invite you to read all about it on RoguesIndia blog, where we posted news and photos of our trip.

Shawn Burke gets ready to ride in benefit of The Historic Y (and The Rogue Theatre)

Shawn Burke
In celebration of a milestone birthday, The Rogue’s friend (and landlord) Shawn Burke is setting out on a bike ride from Vancouver, BC, to San Diego. In addition to experiencing the scenery and majesty of the western U.S., he is using this opportunity to raise funds for six of the nonprofit organizations who call The Historic Y their home: Arizona Wilderness Coalition, Coalition for Sonoran Desert Protection, The Rogue Theatre, Sky Island Alliance, Western Watersheds Project, and ZUZI! Dance Company.

You can read more about this ambitious ride and pledge your support at ride.thehistoricy.com or visit his page on Facebook.

There’s still time to purchase a season package for the 2012-2013 season

Work is already in progress on the upcoming season at The Rogue (the set for Journey to the West is halfway done!). Throughout the upcoming season, you’ll experience stories of love, loss, and redemption as we journey from ancient China to medieval Poland to 19th century Russia to England–both medieval and modern. It’s going to be a glorious season and we invite you to join us in bringing all five shows to life.
