ROAN @ THE GATES

CHICAGO PREMIERE

Written by: Christina Telesca Gorman*
Directed by: Lexi Saunders

Nat is an outspoken civil rights attorney; Roan, the quiet one, is an NSA analyst who isn’t even allowed to tell her wife the location of her next business trip. A long-time couple confronts questions about their marriage they never thought to ask as their personal relationship collides with national security. “Timely, thought-provoking play.” – Broadway World NJ.  “Clever staging concepts, and Edward Snowden-like, no-way-out, dilemma resonates.” – San Francisco Examiner.  To learn more, read our Artistic Director’s note and Backstage Guide.
