The Normal Heart ()

Produced by

Buddies in Bad Times Theatre and Studio 180 Theatre

Playwright: Larry Kramer
Director: Joel Greenberg


The Alexander Street Chamber Theatre


October 19th, 2012 – November 18th, 2012


The story of a society in denial between 1981 and 1984, The Normal Heart unfolds like a real-life political thriller, as a tight-knit group of friends refuses to let doctors, politicians and the press bury the truth of an unspoken epidemic behind a wall of silence.

A quarter-century after it was written, this outrageous, unflinching and totally unforgettable look at the beginning of the AIDS crisis remains one of the theatre’s most powerful evenings ever. (
