Hit the Wall
By Ike Holter
Directed by Bo Frazier

January 31, February 1, 6, 7, 8 at 8:00 p.m.
February 2 at 2:00 p.m.
E.C. Mabie Theatre, UI Theatre Building

On a typical hot and humid New York City night in the summer of ‘69, a diverse group of queer outcasts gathers at The Stonewall Inn. However, on this night, when the police show up for a routine raid, all are thrust into the frontlines of history. A riot ensues that would launch the LGBTQ+ movement in America. With an original rock n’ roll score, emotional poetic language, and gritty choreography, Hit the Wall pays homage to these revolutionaries who came together 50 years ago to fight for their freedom.

This production contains sexual content, sexual violence, violence, and adult language. Please note that this production includes language that is charged in connection to race, sexual orientation, and gender identity/expression. Theatrical haze, fog, and strobe lighting effects will be used.

“A must see… A powerful history lesson that needs to have a voice” (Rochester Democrat and Chronicle).

The Agitators tells of the enduring, tempestuous friendship of Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass. Young abolitionists when they met in the 1840s, they were full of hopes, dreams, and common purpose. This is the story of their 45-year friendship – from its beginning in Rochester to the highest halls of government. They agitated the nation, they agitated each other, and – in doing so – they helped shape the Constitution and the course of American history. Presented in celebration of the 100th Anniversary of women’s suffrage – and in the midst of the Iowa Caucuses.

Showtimes: January 24-February 16, Thursday-Saturday at 7:30pm, and Sunday at 2pm.
Riverside Theatre, 213 North Gilbert Street, Iowa City, IA, 52245

The Young Footliters Youth Theatre invites you to join them on a slightly different adventure, as Jim Hawkins, after having his worst day ever, dreams of a better life as a pirate. He meets pirates Billy Bones and Long John Silver, as well as beautiful mermaids, dancing crabs, and some very vocal parrots.
