The Normal Heart, directed by Fresno State Theatre Professor J. Daniel Herring. Runs three weekends, September 12 - 28 at the Bonner Auditorium at the Fresno Art Museum.
The Normal Heart is playwright and activist Larry Kramer's iconic work about the onset of the AIDS epidemic in New York City and the profound effect its denials and evasions had on the entire community. Called “a masterwork of love, rage, and pride,” the play is a fearless look at the sexual politics of New York in the early 1980's.
The production runs in conjunction with the FAM's exhibit of four sections from the internationally celebrated AIDS Memorial Quilt – the 54-ton, handmade tapestry that stands as a memorial to more than 94,000 individuals lost to AIDS.
