WEST ORANGE, NJ — Luna Stage will launch 2019 with the world premiere of Christina Gorman’s cyber-security romance “Roan @ The Gates,” directed by Michelle Tattenbaum. An exploration of internet privacy and the risks of whistleblowing, this suspenseful new play examines the cost of doing the right thing.

The show will run through Sunday, Feb. 24, with shows on Thursdays at 7:30 p.m.; Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m.; and Sundays at 3 p.m.
Inspired by a shadowy photograph of Edward Snowden’s girlfriend, “Roan @ The Gates” is a fictional investigation into cyber-security. Roan is a data analyst for the NSA, and her wife, Nat, is a lawyer committed to human rights advocacy. When their personal life collides with national security, it launches a beautiful, high-stakes adventure that illuminates the cost of secrecy.
