Rogue Machine Theatre has just taken over the Matrix Theatre space at 7657 Melrose Ave. Rogue was founded in 2008 as a performing arts organization that develops and nurtures emerging playwrights, introduces important contemporary works to L.A. and engages diverse audiences.
We only produce world premieres of new plays, primarily by Los Angeles based playwrights, and plays new to Los Angeles, including American, West Coast, and Regional premieres of significant contemporary theatrical works.
Rogue Machine seeks to be a theatre of ideas and imagination, a theatre which mirrors and examines contemporary culture, a theatre which nurtures contemporary playwrights, and a theatre whose work continually engages the community and creates a dialogue which resonates after the curtain closes.
Rogue Machine also considers building an audience for the future to be an important part of its mission and seeks to attract and serve a younger, more diverse Los Angeles adult audience.
