Whether you’re in New York City for WorldPride, the Stonewall 50 commemoration, or simply have a desire to see terrific theater — especially the kind that explores the LGBTQ narrative — don’t miss the chance to see Lincoln Center Theater‘s The Rolling Stone, a new play by Chris Urch.
Set in Uganda, a country subjected to severe anti-homosexuality laws, The Rolling Stone is an intimate yet explosive family drama about two brothers at odds: Dembe (played by Ato Blankson-Wood) a gay man in a clandestine relationship, and Joe (played by James Udom) a church pastor who fervently rails against the lifestyle his brother is forced to conceal.
The production features sets by Arnulfo Maldonado, costumes by Dede Ayite, lighting by Japhy Weideman, and original music and sound by Justin Ellington.
