The Normal Heart

The Normal Heart by Larry Kramer

Directed by Brook Davis

Oct. 29-31 & Nov. 4-7, 2021

In the early 1980s, one man rose up and helped lead an army to fight an ignored plague.  Larry Kramer's largely-autobiographical play, The Normal Heart, explores the politics, fear, anger, and frustration he experienced during the early years of the AIDS crisis in New York.  This year, 2021, marks the 40th anniversary of the first cases of the disease later to be known as AIDS.  Kramer's The Normal Heart is a profound, tragic history lesson for audience members too young to remember this dark time in America, as well as those old enough to see the parallels between then and now.
