Suncoast AIDS Theatre Project presents The Normal Heart, one night only, Monday, Nov. 19, 7:30 p.m., at American Stage Theatre, 163 Third St. N., downtown St. Petersburg.
ST. PETERSBURG - As a prelude to World AIDS Day, a staged play reading of Larry Kramer’s Tony Award Winning Masterpiece of Love, Rage and Pride, The Normal Heart, will be presented Monday, Nov. 19, 7:30 p.m., at American Stage Theatre, 163 Third St. N., downtown St. Petersburg.

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 and a city in denial.

The Normal Heart is a story of a community struggling to unite and fight for their very lives against a disease never experienced before, where friends, lovers and strangers are quickly being swept away and under the rug. The Normal Heart is a true tale of courage, rage and love.

A quarter-century after it was written, this outrageous, unflinching, and totally unforgettable look at the sexual politics of New York during the AIDS crisis remains one of the theatre’s most powerful evenings ever. It won the 2011 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play.

A dynamite evening of drama with an equally dynamite cast, The Normal Heart stars Eric Davis, Chris Crawford, Jim Sorensen, Roxanne Fay, Joel Gennari, Chris Swan, John Lombardi, Matt McGee, Jeff Ray, and Larry Alexander.

If you like beautifully written, passionate, thought-provoking theatre that addresses important social issues in a moving and dramatic way, you will love The Normal Heart.

This one night only performance will benefit PWA (People with AIDS) programs at Metropolitan Charities of Pinellas. Admission is Pay-What-You-Will and all performers are donating their time and talents.

Suncoast AIDS Theatre Project is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization whose mission is to raise awareness, provide assistance, and perpetuate a life of dignity for those affected and infected by HIV and AIDS.

Doors open at 7 p.m., curtain time is 7:30 p.m. Cash bar will be available.
