Rogues  Gallery

Nine playwrights take on the absurdity of the art world in Rogues’ Gallery, a collection of ten-minute plays framed in a rapid-fire comedy. When two hapless security guards find the gallery’s prize sculpture has been destroyed on their watch, it’s a race through the day’s security camera footage to find out what happened - and come up with a really good excuse before the artist comes back with the toughest critic in town. Each play features a different group that comes through the gallery, from employees to tourists to art thieves, and optional transition scenes can be used to thread any combination of plays together into one story. A series of hilarious mistakes just might add up to a masterpiece in Rogues’ Gallery. This collection includes the following short plays: Midnight Bandits by Rachel Bublitz Fancy People Like Fondue by Maria Pretzl Pranksy by Elissa C. Huang The Sketch Pod by Tyler Dwiggins Mayonnaise Mayonnaise by Patrick Greene The Participant by Jason Pizzarello The Art Dealer is Impressed by Carrie McCrossen The Collector by Kathryn Funkhouser Two Ships Passing by Ian McWethy (*These plays can be licensed together or separately. If you license the whole collection, you have permission to pick and choose which plays to perform.) Comedy 120-130 minutes,* each play is 10 minutes 6-35+ actors, flexible casting
