Rogue Theater Festival is back once again making waves for emerging playwrights. This year, the festival presents over twenty, brand new, one act shows at Theatre Row in New York City and streaming online on ShowTix4U. Rogue is staying true to its name by choosing to not only present mostly full length shows, but to also extend its festival an entire week because of the massive amount of amazing new work submissions this year. A self described ‘mom-and-pop’ theater festival, Rogue prides itself on providing a positive and intimate experience for all the playwrights and performers who participate each year.

Not only has Rogue Theater Festival grown to be able to present full length shows this year and extend the festival by a week, it’s also proud to announce Rogue will now be collaborating with longtime Off Broadway powerhouse Abingdon Theatre Company. Abingdon is a champion for shedding light on playwrights writing on a variety of perspectives and consistently providing a supportive and nurturing environment for their artists, which, to Rogue, is what it’s all about.

The lineup for Rogue this year includes new plays, musicals, staged readings and an entire second week labeled Rogue Theater Festival: Encores! This second week will feature artists that have worked with Rogue in the past and end by presenting the play Senseless by Wayne L. Firestone, which has been developed over his years of participating in the festival.
