Disposable Necessities

Disposable Necessities“CRITIC’S CHOICE” – LA Times

In the future, aging and death have become annoyances of the past!

Thanks to a process of downloading the digitized soul into another host body, or Module, we no longer need to worry about our bodies wearing out, or dying.

Only the very wealthy can afford to upgrade, but if you are rich enough you can be anyone that you desire. Rogue Machine takes comedic look at greed, the value of life – and death.

"Neil McGowan is a take no prisoners humorist, but beneath the hilarity there’s a darkness traditional Rogue Machine fashion. This story poses a wonderful future for mankind, along with some consequential questions that must be considered,” says John Perrin Flynn Producing Artistic Director.

Directed by Guillermo Cienfuegos (winner of both the Ovation and LADCC Awards - “Best Director”), the cast includes Claire Blackwelder (as Phillip), Billy Flynn (as Alice), Ann Noble (as Dee), Jefferson Reid (as Chadwick), Darrett Sanders (as Daniel).

"Rogue Machine scores line with the venerable company’s pursuit of new, quirky, envelope pushing productions. Innovative...loads of laughs” - Hollywood Progressive
