“The Normal Heart” by Larry Kramer will be performed on November 1-3 at 7pm at the Phelps Mansion Museum, Binghamton, NY. This production is produced by Rob Egan from The Southern Tier Aids Program and directed by Kate Murray of Studio 271 Productions.
A powerful, stirring drama based on the harrowing true story of the beginning of the AIDS crisis in New York City, and the gay men who fought with an entire political system to take their plight seriously. Based on playwright Larry Kramer’s own experiences founding the Gay Men’s Health Crisis in New York in the 1980’s, ‘The Normal Heart’ follows Ned Weeks, a reluctant leader but furious activist, as he campaigns for awareness, and tends to his own friends and lovers who are dying all around him. A strong indictment against ignorance, and a heartfelt story of love and compassion, The Normal Heart is a passionate and searing portrayal of a population at war, and a plague that nips at its heels every step of the way.
