The Jammer
THE JAMMER resurrects that greatest of American entertainments, the Roller Derby: half sport, half show, all action. In just over an hour, THE JAMMER packs multiple roller-derby sequences, a riot, a roller-coaster ride, vomit, spit, blood, sex and love. In short, THE JAMMER is the King Lear of roller-derby plays.

Winner of a Fringe First Award for Writing, Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2004. "This is an exceptional script by Yale drama graduate Rolin Jones. It's fast, funny and, at times, incredibly touching, delivering laughter and tears in equal measure." Scotsman. "With its procession of eccentrics: salty-tongued derby competitors, fast-talking sports announcers, desperado skating impresarios and dysfunctional clerics. When it comes to vomit, venereal disease and violence, nothing is off limits here. THE JAMMER is scabrous, hard-core, fascinating and funny" Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "Jones' script zips along in short scenes and fast-talking vernacular, revealing an unexpected sympathy for its characters [THE JAMMER] promises  vomit, spit, blood, and sex.' That spells rollermania to us."  Village Voice. "Rolin Jones' campy comedy nets big laughs "  NY Daily News. "a wild ride-fast funny and sometimes frantic This is high-energy drama." American Theatre Web. " raunchy and hilarious "  NY Magazine/Metro TV. "a charmer" Wall Street Journal.
