The Inconvenience
Hit the Wall by Ike Holter, Directed by Eric Hoff

Tempers and temperatures start to rise in the summer of ’69 when a routine police raid on an underground Greenwich Village hotspot erupts in to a full-scale riot, the impetus of the modern gay rights movement.  Follow ten unlikely revolutionaries as they take to the streets and assert their rights.  A live rock band provides the screaming soundtrack to this retelling of the epic night at The Stonewall Inn.
 
 
PROGRAMMING:

In addition to remounting their sold-out run of HIT THE WALL, The Inconvenience will literally be taking over Theater on the Lake’s northern pavilion with a mural wall that doubles as a photobooth and a walk-able map of Christopher Street and the surrounding areas so that you can explore the streets of the West Village prior to the show—all accompanied by live pre- and post-show music in and around the southern pavilion.

Thursday 7/26:
