Award-winning Redtwist Theatre has revealed the second production in its 2023 -  2024 Season of Pride at its home in Edgewater, the newly renovated Redtwist Theatre, 1044 W. Bryn Mawr Ave. The 19th season continues with The Normal Heart, July 21 - August 25 written by Larry Kramer and directed by Ensemble Member Ted Hoerl. The performance schedule is Thursdays - Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 3:30 p.m. Press opening is Sunday, July 21 at 3:30 p.m. The anticipated running time, including intermission, is 120 minutes. Single tickets will go on sale in June for $35 at with discounts available for seniors, students and industry professionals and pay-what-you-can for all Friday performances. 

Larry Kramer’s beautiful, searing play about the earliest days of the AIDS epidemic, based on his experience organizing Gay Men’s Health Crisis, opens Redtwist’s newly renovated venue. The play, winner of Tony, Drama Desk and Olivier Awards, tells the story of an advocacy group that struggled against government suppression and internal strife in the face of the disappearance of their community. This heart wrenching, humanist play, written more than 40 years ago about a small group of advocates calling for action from a government that insists that nothing is wrong, seems darkly familiar and more universal than ever.
