Rogue Machine (“Best Production” - three seasons - Ovation, and Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Awards) presents the World Premiere of THE SUPER VARIETY MATCH BONUS ROUND! by Deb Hiett. “A sure-shot writer … bold new voice,” wrote the Village Voice about Deb Hiett’s play Words in a Certain Order, at NYC’s Dixon Place.
Multi-award winner Cameron Watson directs.
A very modern kid, with no vowels in his/her name, rents a bedroom in the home of a small-town older Texas couple, while attending a big desert music festival weekend. The couple is struggling with grief and how to find a safe place in the big scary rapidly changing world. The kid decides to help. Like a fairy tale come true the couple suddenly find themselves in a 1970s-era TV game show where the stakes are life itself and the prize is a new beginning, during this thrill ride of a comedy.
"I was surprised at every turn of the page. I’ve always been deeply interested in what tragedy does to the flow of life and how those of us left in the wake of debilitating events deal, or don't deal, with what is left. Because what is left is life as we now know it --- after the explosion, the earthquake, or a fall into the abyss. I think Deb’s play tackles this main conceit from many angles and, in doing so, tackles how we see each other, what we mean to each other, and how we move on. She has draped it with side-splitting humor and fearless imagination. That is no easy feat." – Cameron Watson, Director
