Larry Kramer's hit drama about public and private indifference to the AIDS plague and one man's lonely fight to awaken the world to the crisis. Produced to acclaim in NY, London and LA, The Normal Heart follows Ned Weeks, a gay activist enraged at the indifference of public officials and the gay community. While trying to save the world from itself, he confronts the personal toll of AIDS when his lover dies of the disease.
Larry Kramer’s iconic, partly autobiographical drama of the AIDS epidemic was staged by New York’s Public Theatre in 1985, revived Off-Broadway in 2004, on Broadway in 2011 and at A.C.T. in 2012. But this is Theatre Rhino’s first time to produce the play, about a gay activist in the early days of AIDS who’s struggling to alert an indifferent world to the scope of the unfolding tragedy. John Fisher directs.
