NOVEMBER AT ROGUE MACHINE
“Electrifying. Gut-punchingly powerful, unexpectedly laugh-getting … may well be the year’s most intimately staged production. WOW!"
"I named Tim Venable’s The Beautiful People one of last year’s 10 Best World Premiere plays, and Baby Foot more than lives up to its reputation. Like its acclaimed predecessor, this one too packs one heck of a wallop." - STAGE SCENE LA
“Do not miss. Highly recommend it. Brilliant twists … a beautiful deep dive character study. Excellent production. Yet another triumph for Rogue Machine." - DISCOVER HOLLYWOOD
"Sexy, gritty, funny, and adult, this recovery drama is a triumph for Rogue Machine.” - BROADWAY WORLD
BABY FOOT by Tim Venable
Playing on our immersive Henry Murray Stage
CLOSES NOV 20, 2023
Two seemingly mismatched souls find themselves on the cusp of a life-changing connection. Blackie’s first night in rehab intersects with Alexis’s 90-day release. A long night’s journey into day drives their sensation seeking impulsivities full throttle into the same lane where hearts and minds are torn between the seductive allure of the drug and the elusive promise of a brighter, sober future.
RUNTIME: 85 minutes, no intermission
"It feels bare, truthful, twitchy, and intimate, pushing boundaries between theatre, life, and therapy.”
"Baby Foot feels organic and so weightless that it’s hard to believe at some points that you are watching something fictional and not watching real life unfold in front of you.”
"Baby Foot is another fresh triumph … at Rogue Machine, who can’t seem to stop making fierce, groundbreaking, sublimely original theatre hits one after the other." - BROADWAY WORLD
