The Normal Heart - Dec 1
AFC in Partnership with TimeLine Theatre

Normal Heart

Originally premiered Off-Broadway in 1985, TimeLine's production is the first Chicago staging of this landmark play that "blasts you like an open, overstoked furnace" (The New York Times) since its Tony-Award winning Broadway production in 2011. Set at the height of the public and private indifference to the AIDS plague in the early 1980s, this searing drama will feature acclaimed actor/director David Cromer in his return to the Chicago stage as a passionate activist leading the fight to awaken the world to the crisis. Along the way he, and the community he leads into the battle, must face the deeply held fears that led so many to remain silent for too long.

TimeLine's THE NORMAL HEART features an all-star cast of Chicago's top actors led by David Cromer as Ned Weeks, Mary BethFisher as Dr. Emma Brookner, Patrick Andrews as Felix Turner, and Marc Grapey as Ben Weeks, with Stephen Cone, Joel Gross, Nik Kourtis, Stephen Rader, and Alex Weisman.

This performance includes a post-show discussion about the play and epidemic. Panelists' names and bios coming soon!
