Miss Lilly Gets Boned

Miss Lilly Gets BonedRogue Machine Presents the West Coast Premiere of Bekah Brunstetter's (known for The Cake, This Is Us, American Gods) Play at Electric Lodge in Venice

Sex, faith, and violence are all part of this intricate package of connections in Miss Lilly Gets Boned. Bekah Brunstetter imaginatively explores the tenuous and permeable boundaries that separate our civilized side from our more animalistic one, and the ways that faith can limit or uplift humanity. While a captive elephant grows ever more anxious in chains, a virginal Sunday school teacher takes a big chance, by opening her heart to the dangers of love.

"Miss Lilly is by far my favorite, and definitely the craziest, play I've ever written," says Bekah Brunstetter. "It was created before I ever learned to question what I wrote. Working on it again, and with Rogue Machine, is such a gift. I get to revisit a younger version of myself and wrestle with those questions, I'm still wrestling with in my grown up life, like what I believe and why I believe it. Where does goodness come from?"

Director Robin Larsen, the award winning cast includes Tasha Ames (as Lara), Brady Amaya (as Jordan), Kavi Ladnier (as Vandalla), Larisa Oleynik (as Miss Lilly), Iman Nazemzadeh (as Richard)
Justice Quinn (as Harold), with Rachel Caselli and Amir Levi as Elephant Puppeteers.

Produced by John Perrin Flynn and Andrew Carlberg, the production/creative team includes Stephanie Kerley Schwartz (Scenic Designer), Mark Royston and Sean Cawelti (Puppet Design), Martha Carter, (Lighting Design), Christopher Moscatiello (Sound Design), Jocelyn Hublau Parker (Costume Design), Hollace Starr (Dialect Coach), Julia Garcia Combs (Puppet Coach), Kis Knekt (Scenic Atist), Joshua Chamberlain and Taylor Kass (Assistant Directors), Christopher Breyer (Dramaturge), Victoria Hoffman (Casting Director), Amanda Bierbauer (Production Manager), Michelle Hanzelova (Media Producer).

Rogue Machine won the Ovation Award for BEST SEASON (2017) and the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award for BEST SEASON (2016). In the last 8 years, Rogue Machine has won “BEST PRODUCTION OF THE YEAR” three times from these organizations. RMT has produced seventeen World Premieres, nine of which have been published by Samuel French, Dramatists Play Service or Broadway Play Publishing. Six of the productions have had subsequent productions at significant theatres, including Off Broadway, major Regional houses and The Donmar Warehouse in London. Two world premieres, Small Engine Repair and One Night in Miami…, are currently being made into feature films.
