The Rolling Stone

A powerful and gripping play where family, faith and paranoia collide

Dembe and Sam have been seeing each other for a while. They should be wondering where this is going and when to introduce each other to their families. But they’re gay and this is Uganda. The consequences of their relationship being discovered will be violent and explosive. Especially for Dembe, whose brother goes into the pulpit each week to denounce the evils of one man loving another.

In some parts of the world, being gay can get you killed. The Rolling Stone could not be more timely. Urch has crafted a powerful and gripping play where family, faith and paranoia collide. Shining a light on bigotry and the battle to be yourself in an unforgiving society, it is a play for our challenging times.

Helmed by acclaimed director Adam Cook (Much Ado About Nothing and A Doll’s House for Sport for Jove, The Motherf**ker with the Hat for Workhorse Theatre, Daylight Saving for Darlinghurst Theatre Company). The Rolling Stone is an exciting chance for Sydney audiences to discover a major, new voice.
