The Rolling Stone

14 January 2016 — 20 February 2016

Guardian Top 10 Theatre of 2015 - Alfred Hickling

★★★★★ "Chris Urch's second play – about homophobia in Uganda – is a proper stunner. ‘The Rolling Stone’ is packed with lines that sing, slaps that sting and scenes that will break your heart." Miriam Gillinson, Time Out

★★★★ "Chris Urch’s scorching play... he writes with rare passion about the ugly politics of persecution — and about how far people are prepared to go for those they love" Henry Hitchings, Evening Standard

★★★★ "Premiered in this taut, splendidly acted production by Ellen McDougall, the piece packs a devastating emotional punch." Paul Taylor, The Independent

★★★★ "With the Anglican communion narrowly avoiding schism over gay rights, Urch’s compelling play could hardly be more timely" Michael Billington, The Guardian

★★★★ "Ellen McDougall’s production has a scorching, sweat-drenched intensity" Sam Marlowe, The Times

★★★★ "Chris Urch’s Bruntwood Prize-winning play crashes into Richmond’s Orange Tree Theatre with the force of a very small, but very real meteor... an unflinching drama" David Hutchison, The Stage

★★★★ "Chris Urch is already becoming one of British theatre's major talents" Daisy Bowie-Sell, WhatsOnStage

"an intense, searing and deeply moving production, perfectly staged" Laura Peatman, A Younger Theatre
