The Jammer

Written by Rolin Jones
Directed by Jackson Gay

Atlantic Stage 2
January 22 – February 17, 2013


Rolin Jones’ Atlantic debut, The Intelligent Design of Jenny Chow, was a Pulitzer prize finalist. After several seasons writing for the television shows “Weeds,” “Friday Night Lights” and “Boardwalk Empire,” Rolin returns to Atlantic with a romantic urban fable for our time.

More Info

In this wild theatrical adventure, we plunge into the hard-boiled, bizarre world of professional roller derby in New York during the late 1950’s. When Jack Lovington, a lovelorn Brooklynite, joins up with the rough and tumble New York Bombers, little does he know that his life is about to be turned completely upside down and that he’s about to find himself on a most unexpected rollercoaster ride.

 

Reviews

“Scabrous, hard-core, fascinating and funny”

Atlanta journal-constitution

 

“Tough-talking and sharp-elbowed! The actors are given free reign to juice up their colorful roles.”

The new york times

 

“A ripsnorting, retro riot!”

TIMEout new york

 

“Bouncy, roller derby fun! A wonderful, energetic and authentic-feeling recreation of the derby matches.”
