Running Time: 1 hour and 55 minutes, with one intermission
 

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.

When THE ROLLING STONE premiered in London, Evening Standard called it “a scorching portrayal of love and persecution.” The Guardian said, “Chris Urch’s compelling play could hardly be more timely,” and The Independent said it “packs a devastating, emotional punch.”
