A RAISIN IN THE SUN

A RAISIN IN THE SUN
by Lorraine Hansberry
directed by Ron OJ Parson

August 20 – December 7, 2013

At TimeLine Theatre
615 W. Wellington Ave.

This powerful drama “changed American theater forever” (The New York Times) and resonates across generations — recently serving as inspiration for the Pulitzer Prize-winning Clybourne Park. An African-American family living in a crowded apartment on Chicago’s South side during the 1950s believes that a better life is just around the corner. But they are challenged when their plan to buy a home in the Clybourne Park neighborhood is thwarted by racial intolerance. This award-winning play celebrates faith, courage and the human spirit, even as it spotlights divides that still plague Chicago more than 60 years after its premiere.

THE NORMAL HEART

THE NORMAL HEART
by Larry Kramer
directed by Nick Bowling

October 26 – December 29, 2013

At Stage 773
1225 W. Belmont Ave.

Originally premiered Off-Broadway in 1985, TimeLine’s production is the first Chicago staging of this landmark play that “blasts you like an open, overstoked furnace” (The New York Times) since its Tony-Award winning Broadway production in 2011. Set at the height of the public and private indifference to the AIDS plague in the early 1980s, this searing drama will feature acclaimed actor/director David Cromer in his return to the Chicago stage as a passionate activist leading the fight to awaken the world to the crisis. Along the way he, and the community he leads into the battle, must face the deeply held fears that led so many to remain silent for too long.
