The Normal Heart
Sunday, July 29 at 2:00 pm (signup deadline was 3 pm, Jun 15)
Larry Kramerís semi-autobiographical, landmark play about his and other menís experiences living gay in New York City comes to Washington in a honored revival directed by George C. Wolfe. The plot principally contrasts the volatile Ned, the founder of an HIV group, who is outspoken and confrontational, with his lover Felix, a New York Times writer who lives in fear of public demonstrations and disclosure. The play, written when the epidemic was gaining national attention, gains its dramatic impact from the struggle about how much to withhold information about HIV/AIDS and how much to go public with its societal consequences. The play opened Off-Broadway at the Public Theater in 1985, has been performed around the world, and was revived in 2011, when it won three Tony Awards plus two nominations.
