Ahead of the official opening July 15, Lincoln Center Theater’s The Rolling Stone has released footage of the American premiere production.
The play made its world premiere at the Royale Exchange Theatre in England, where it won the Manchester Theatre Award for Best New Play and moved to London, where it won an Off-West End Award.
Written by Chris Urch and directed by Saheem Ali, the play follows a young gay Ugandan man as he clashes with his pastor brother over expression of identity and sexuality.
Watch the cast—Ato Blankson-Wood, Latoya Edwards, Robert Gilbert, Myra Lucretia Taylor, Adenike Thomas, and James Udom—in the highlights above.
The LCT production will feature sets by Arnulfo Maldonado, costumes by Dede Ayite, lighting by Japhy Weideman, and original music and sound design by Justin Ellington.
