img_8488A searing drama about public and private indifference to the AIDS plague and one man’s lonely fight to awaken the world to the crisis. Students in the drama department at St. Johns County Center for the Arts at St. Augustine High School will perform this play. Directed by Mike Beaman.

Produced to acclaim in New York, London and Los Angeles, The Normal Heart follows Ned Weeks, a gay activist enraged at the indifference of public officials and the gay community. While trying to save the world from itself, he confronts the personal toll of AIDS when his lover dies of the disease.

Originally published in 1985 and celebrated in a passionate and eloquent 2011 Broadway revival, this definitive edition of the play features an updated version of the play, as well as notes on both the original production and the revival.
