IN THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW by Katherine Cortez, directed by Elina de Santos

An apocalyptic event in an LGBT nightclub changes everything; love becomes hate, hate becomes love. Playwright Katherine Cortez grew up in Orlando with no openly gay nightclubs, witnessing family and friends hiding in shadows and losing lives to AIDS before it had a name. She completed the AIDS LifeCycle ride, and then…The Pulse nightclub shooting on the eve of LA PRIDE. A World Premiere production, run time 75 minutes.

 

THE INTERFERENCE by Lynda Radley, directed by Cathy Grant-Thomas

He said. She said. Truth. In a culture where student athletes become celebrities, everybody has an incentive to bury the truth…except the victim. Winner of the Scotsman Fringe First Award for excellence and innovation in new writing, a Broadway Baby Bobby Award for exceptional work at the Fringe, and on the final shortlist for the Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award for outstanding work addressing human rights issues, The Interference comes to Rogue Machine as the American Premiere for a limited run during the Hollywood Fringe Festival, run time 72 minutes.

 

WE ARE NOT THESE HANDS by Sheila Callaghan, directed by Larry Biederman

Two cagey 15 year olds, Moth and Belly, live in the ruins of a dystopian society where filth is abundant and the addiction to consumerism and porn is incessant. But, they have each other – a relationship bound by love, an Internet café, and a slew of inside jokes. If they could only “cross the river,” and be in the capitalist society where an ostensible future exists. When they meet Leather, the journey veers in unconceivable directions as a series of humorous events unfold. A Los Angeles Premiere production, run time 88 minutes.

 

THE PLEASURE PROJECT by Ava Bogle, directed by Rachel Avery

“What do the humans have that could possibly be worth saving?” asks the alien leader in their weekly Aliens Anonymous meeting. Paula, the sexiest of the aliens, knows the answer! This hilarious, irreverent and sensual one-woman variety show begs the question: can female sexuality save humanity? A World Premiere production, run time 45 minutes.
