Editor’s Pick! “Hickson sketches with confidence and power.”The Washington Post

Five Stars! “Brilliant! Ella Hickson’s writing is terrific.”DC Theater Scene

After amazing and overwhelming audience and critical response, the show goes on!  Come see the Fringe hit everybody’s talking about for the first time, or come back for a whole new experience! The Rogues aren’t done with DC yet!

Adored by critics and audiences, EIGHT is unlike anything Washington audiences have ever seen. Fresh off sell-out houses at the Capital Fringe Festival, The Washington Rogues bring this unique theatrical event to the DC Arts Center in Adams Morgan. Same great cast. Same brilliant writing. Now with air conditioning!

From a ballot of eight potential performances, audience members must each choose one. The top four chosen are then performed in a one-of-a-kind theatrical collage, creating a unique experience for audience and cast alike—because nobody knows what the next monologue will be until the moment it’s chosen. Electrified, invigorated Fringe audiences clamored to see more. For two weekends in August, now they can!
