ONE Archives Foundation will be presenting virtual reading of Larry Kramer's "The Normal Heart" on May 8, 2021 5pm PT, followed by a live Q+A with cast members. Directed by Emmy Award-winning director Paris Barclay, this presentation will be the first after Kramer's death, and the first time that this play will feature a predominately BIPOC and LGBTQ cast.

Laverne Cox and Sterling K. Brown:

The cast includes Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us, Black Panther); Laverne Cox (Orange Is The New Black, Promising Young Woman); Jeremy Pope (Hollywood, Choir Boy); Vincent Rodriguez III (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Insatiable): Guillermo Díaz (Scandal, Weeds); Jake Borelli (Grey's Anatomy, The Thing About Harry); Ryan O'Connell (Special, Will & Grace); Daniel Newman (Walking Dead, Homeland); Jay Hayden (Station 19); and Danielle Savre (Station 19).

The story of a city in denial, 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. First produced by Joseph Papp at New York's Public Theater, the play was a critical sensation and a seminal moment in theater history. So ahead of its time was this play that many of the core issues it addresses - including gay marriage, the healthcare system and, of course, AIDS - are just as relevant today as they were when it first premiered.
