    "Don't you remember how it was? Can't you see how important it is for us to love openly, without hiding and without guilt?"

    Meet Ned Weeks, an impassioned activist in 1980s New York, battling indifference and discrimination surrounding a mysterious new disease that threatens to consume everything he knows. Amid heartbreak and societal apathy, as they lose those closest to them, Ned and his contemporaries grapple with the profound importance of love, community, pride, and hope in the face of a devastating epidemic.

    The Normal Heart by Larry Kramer, first performed in 1985, is a searing and emotionally charged drama that is breathed life from the experiences of activist-giant Kramer himself. This vivid exploration confronts the early days of the AIDS crisis, spanning the years 1981 to 1984—the heartbeat of an era.
