The Normal Heart

Posted in Culture with tags , on June 7, 2012 by substanceandstyledc

As Washington, DC prepares to host the first International AIDS Conference in the United States in twenty years in July, Arena Stage is bringing HIV/AIDS center stage with their production of Tony award winning play, The Normal Heart written by Larry Kramer and directed by Tony winner George C. Wolfe.  Set in a time not that long ago, at the onset of the AIDS epidemic, according to press notes the play takes raw look at “a circle of friends that struggle to contain the mysterious disease ravaging New York’s gay community. Dismissed by politicians, frustrated by doctors and fighting with each other, their differences could tear them apart – or change the world.” The Normal Heart runs at Arena through July 29.
