Free Will Craft and Vine, 3701 N Davidson St., #201, Charlotte, NC 28205
It’s the summer of ’69, and the death of music icon Judy Garland has emboldened her gay followers. A routine police raid on an underground Greenwich Village hotspot erupts into a full-scale riot, the impetus of the modern gay rights movement. That’s the well-known, oft-rehearsed myth of Stonewall, anyhow. Smash that myth against the vivid theatrical imagination of playwright Ike Holter, add a howling live rock ‘n’ roll band, and you get HIT THE WALL. Remixing this historic confrontation reveals ten unlikely revolutionaries, caught in the turmoil and fighting to claim “I was there.”
HIT THE WALL is performed with no intermission. Show runs approx. 90min.
A $15 food and beverage minimum (in addition to the ticket), is required at the venue. Free Will Craft + Vine is a self-pour tap room and guests are encouraged to grab a drink or two before the show as well as additional beverages during the performance. Please be respectful of fellow guests when leaving and returning to your seat during the performance. A food truck is available on-site for dinner prior to the show.
