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.

Hit the Wall is performed with supertitles. In addition, an ASL interpreter is available for any performance with two weeks' notice. For more information, contact patronservices@krannertcenter.illinois.edu or 217.333.9716.
