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.

The Greenhouse production of The Importance of Being Earnest was great! I mean...Laugh Out Loud (LOL) funny! Not only were the laugh lines palpable, the actors' deliveries were well-timed to showcase the wit of Oscar Wilde.
We came all the way from the western suburbs to see this play and will definitely return for other Greenhouse productions. The intimate venue is refreshing.
We really enjoyed the evening and the $6.00 parking deck nearby was a plus--no hunting for a parking space.
Directed by Shawn Douglass
Featuring Artistic Associates Annabel Armour, Linda Gillum, and David Darlow (as Lady Bracknell)
Charming bachelors Jack and Algernon lead double lives in order to pursue two proper young ladies, while avoiding obligatory lunches with terrifying aunts. When they are caught in their public lies, the result is one of the funniest plays ever written. Wilde dishes up delicious criticisms of identity, manners and the customs of courtship, delivered with his outrageous wit and the sting of laughter.
