Rogues Theatre returns with First and Last by Eugene Stickland and directed by Joe-Norman Shaw.
First and Last:
Almost a world premiere of a new comedy by award-winning playwright and novelist Eugene Stickland. Hilarious and profound, First and Last examines the nature of belonging: who’s in, who’s out, who gets to stay, who has to leave?
