Rogue Machine Theatre was founded in 2008 as a performing arts organization to serve the greater Los Angeles community in developing and nurturing emerging playwrights, introducing important contemporary works to Southern California, and engaging diverse audiences by presenting vital, invigorating productions.
In just seven seasons, through mainstage productions, late-night series and play development workshops, we have become a highly respected producer of quality theatrical experiences and an essential and significant part of the Los Angeles cultural community. We are a creative home for talented actors, directors, designers and, most notably, playwrights. We have received “Best Production” from both the Ovation Awards and the Los Angeles Drama Critics’ Circle Awards three times in the past five years. Our last nine productions have been Los Angeles Times’ Critic’s Choice, an unprecedented achievement. We were named “one of Los Angeles’s top ten theater companies of the decade” by LA Weekly and have been cited annually in all the top “Best of” theater lists.
