A New Play by Ryan Drake
One night while working the graveyard shift at a roller disco in Marfa, TX, Donna and Colby are smacked with a surprise: The Apocalypse! How groovy! Now what?! Skating through a honky tonk disco fugue, the ladies are left to figure out who they are, what it all means, and if anything even matters at all. ROLLER DYNASTY celebrates friendship, disco music, and the end of the world.
