A space for artists to learn to create impossible plays during impossible times.


Program Founders: Lisa Sanaye Dring & Chelsea Sutton

The Rogue Lab is an incubator for new work that stretches the boundary of what is currently being done onstage, including immersive experiences, interactive design, puppet plays and genre-bending pieces that fit within the Rogues’ Hyper-theater aesthetic.
