The Rogue Theatre


300 East University Boulevard, Tucson, AZ - 520-551-2053 - 



Next, the Rogue actors will be performing a staged reading of Jez Butterworth's endlessly mysterious The River this Sunday, December 3 at 2:00 p.m.  


This is the third time in the history of The Rogue we're returning to Butterworth's work. Many of you may remember Jerusalem or The Night Heron from seasons past. Butterworth has a wicked sense of humor and a poetic imagination. I personally can't wait to see this performance.

A staged reading is a lot like seeing a full production. It is performed without a set or costumes, and the actors carry their scripts, but you will leave with the full play in your imagination. Tickets are only $17 and are going quickly. Please join us if you can for this one-day-only performance.
