A Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting winner in 2013, THE ROLLING STONE receives its World Premiere at the Royal Exchange Theatre from  21 APRIL 2015 – 1 MAY 2015.


Dembe and Sam have been seeing each other for a while. They should be wondering where this is going and when to introduce each other to their families. But they’re gay and this is Uganda. The consequences of their relationship 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 deals with some controversial subjects but I hope I’ve tackled them with a lot of heart, honesty and humour.”
Chris Urch, Writer

THE ROLLING STONE will play in rep alongside ANNA KARENINA, drawing from some of the same cast and creative team telling these two very different stories of lovers at odds with their society.
