August 7-10, 2019

Five men start a week long intensive entitled “Facing Toxic Masculinity.” Sam is here because his wife won’t return his calls. Also his daughter blocked him on Facebook. It’s only day two and now he must interact with a real live woman named Pocket. It’s his second child’s birthday next week and he’s desperate to figure out how to be less of a douchebag in time.

About The Mill 

The Mill was founded in 2002 by artistic director, Jaclyn Biskup, and named in homage to her father’s thirty-years at US Steel, and her family’s south side of Chicago working class roots. She’s best known for her stylish, energetic stagings and bold theatricality including the NYC premiere of WORSE THAN TIGERS (Mark Chrisler) 2018. 

About The Rogue Players 

The Rogue Players are an independent theater company interested in unperformed and under-performed work, classics, oughta-be-classics, and experiments. We want to grow with a community of actors, writers, and artists of all different voices, perspectives and experiences.
