GO SEE: World premiere of The Rolling Stone at the Royal Exchange

Nothing to do with Mick or Keith.

No, nothing to do with Mick or Keith. Now playing at the Royal Exchange Theatre until Friday 1 May 2015 is the world premiere of Chris Urch’s The Rolling Stone which tells the story of lovers at odds with society but with a modern twist.

The play’s central characters, Dembe and Sam, have been seeing each other for a while. They should be wondering where it is going and when to introduce each other to their families. But they’re gay and this is Uganda and the consequences of 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.

The Rolling Stone won writer Chris Urch a Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting in 2013.

Ticket are priced £12/£10 from: royalexchange.co.uk/rollingstone
