Rogue Bones are a Manchester based theatre company; we formed in 2016 to share 15 minutes of original work for a Shoots Scratch Night at The Lowry Theatre. We were subsequently invited to perform this work at Paines Plough's Roundabout, as an opener for their award-winning show,Growth, by Luke Norris. And we just kept going from there!
Our most recent production was the regional premiere of Vinay Patel's Free Fall for the Greater Manchester Fringe Festival 2017. In 2018 we produced new shows for the Oldham Coliseum Studio Takeover Season, and were made a Coliseum Associate Company .
