It is 1969, and in the aftermath of the riots, Dr. King's assassination, and the rise of the black power movement, a young man named Stirling comes to Memphis Lee's diner where customers have gathered for decades to share their struggles, faith, and hopes. But this diner has been slated for demolition in the city's new redevelopment plan, and what unfolds is Wilson's most compassionate and humorous work about lives in transition, evolving social awareness, and spirits rising.

It will open at Stratford-upon-Avon and then transfer to Miami Beach - where our audiences will see it at the Colony Theatre on Lincoln Road - before it moves to The Public in New York.

Now Playing Onstage in St. Petersburg - Week of 1/19/2014 THE NORMAL HEART
freeFall Theatre
1/25-2/16/2014
Larry Kramer's unabashed indictment of the politics surrounding the early days of the AIDS epidemic debuted in 1985 and is no less surprising or powerful almost 30 years later. In this largely autobiographical play, Ned Weeks is a lone voice shouting into the darkness about what he sees happening to his friends and community. His warnings erupt into all-out fury as everyone from government leaders to healthcare providers ignore the mounting crisis. Following a now legendary reading by the Suncoast AIDS Theatre Project last season, freeFall reassembles much of the same cast including freeFall Artistic Director, Eric Davis as "Ned Weeks." "No one who cares about the future of the human race can afford to miss The Normal Heart." - Rex Reed
