What Is the Story of Hit the Wall?
Hit the Wall interweaves several plots to illuminate the stories of 10 people who changed the course of history. Set on the first night of the historic Stonewall Riots, this play is not about a group of close knit friends (like Rent) but rather 10 gay, lesbian and transgender people living in New York City in 1969 who all happened to find themselves at the Stonewall Inn on June 28. From a young gay teen who is spending his first day in Greenwich Village to a drag queen mourning the recent death of Judy Garland,Hit the Wall is filled with colorful characters.
