With the help of a howling live rock band, Hit the Wall brings you back to the very flashpoint of the famed 1969 riot that's considered the first major battle in the modern gay-rights movement. Ike Holter's riveting and vividly staged play centers on a diverse group -- including an African-American drag queen, a butch lesbian, a fiercely funny gay duo and a bigoted, gay-bashing cop, among others -- as a joyful evening at a gay nightclub is brutally interrupted by a police raid that touches off days of violent protests.

“In a perfect society you could fall and there would always be someone there to lift you up and dust you off and not leave you. In perfect society, there would be lots of laughter, lots of joy to
celebrate. And in that perfect society, everyone would join in the celebration." _—The Home Project _
For seven years, About Face has created its most powerful, innovative, and celebrated work in collaboration with Chicago’s extraordinary community of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trangender) young people. The audience jumps to its feet in joyful recognition each season at the curtain call of the Youth Theatre production.
About Face presents the world premiere of their most powerful Youth Theatre production yet: The Home Project. Based on interviews with hundreds of gay youths about their experiences with home and homelessness, The Home Project is filled with astonishing, disturbing and ultimately triumphant stories of young people who struggle to create a perfect society while battling complacency, violence and apathy. It is the most thrilling, exciting, and important new play to emerge from the talented adult artists and young people of the nationally celebrated About Face Youth Theatre.
