Rodney Lee Rogers' Work "Predictably Positive"

 Check out this great review of PURE Theatre's Ginger. Charleston City Paper's Erica Jackson says, "PURE founder Rodney Lee Rogers and Lab Director Spencer Deering were initially nervous about writing the play together, their first collaboration. But the result of these two talented playwrights combined is predictably positive. Ginger boasts PURE’s signature blend of dark humor and clever plot twists, even when we think we know exactly where everything will end."


Rodney Lee Rogers is SCAC's 2011 Playwriting Fellow.
