FINAL WEEK! Set in Uganda, "The Rolling Stone" is an intimate yet explosive family drama about two brothers at odds — one a gay man in a clandestine relationship, and the other a church pastor who fervently rails against the life his brother is forced to conceal.
"A heartfelt portrait of gay love under siege. This latter-day variation on Arthur Miller’s 'The Crucible' is beautifully and persuasively acted." -The New York Times
"An important work, the best kind of political theater! It explores the ways religion and belief can help or hurt. Chris Urch illuminates this dichotomy by touching the heart." -Gay City News
★★★★ "Explosive and poignant. Under Saheem Ali's vigorous, sensitive direction, the characters are brought to vivid life." -New York Stage Review
