Activist sets out to unite the community


Larry Kramer’s The Normal Heart is the ground-breaking play about the 1980s AIDS crisis, marking 35 years since its explosive UK premiere.

Early 1980s New York. A new virus is infecting gay men across the city. As the rising death toll is ignored by government and the medical establishment, fear and confusion turns to rage and division.

Using this anger, writer and activist Ned Weeks sets out to unite the community in their fight for recognition and right to survive.

The cast includes Ben Daniels, Liz Carr, Daniel Monks and Danny Lee Wynter. Dominic Cooke(Follies) directs.
