Hit the Wall

By Ike Holter
Robert Gerard Anderson, director

The Stonewall Riots, started during a police raid on the Stonewall Inn in New York City in June 1969, are mythologized as the beginning of the contemporary gay rights movement. Playwright Ike Holter reimagines that night, bringing desire and frustration to sweaty, messy, sexy life. Featuring a live band and a multivoiced narrative, Hit the Wall remembers the past but points bravely to the future.

This production includes the smoking of tobacco products and smoke effects and contains adult content, nudity, and unrestrained swearing. It is intended for mature audiences only.

This production is performed with supertitles to welcome deaf and hard-of-hearing people as well as those for whom English is not their first language.
