The Normal Heart follows the story of gay writer Ned Weeks and his struggle to awaken the world to the reality of the emerging AIDS epidemic during the early 1980s in New York City. Facing the deafening silence of the city administration, the press and the doctors Ned begins an organization that ultimately alters the course of history and defines part of the gay rights movement.
This production also sees the return of the Sold Out Initiative which will support nAGLY (North Shore Alliance of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Youth). For every sold out performance the Salem Theatre will help support a weekly nAGLY meeting by providing the meal and support for the meeting. nAGLY was founded in December 1992 to provide a safe place on the North Shore for GLBTQ teens and is part of a statewide effort to assist the community’s young people in being healthy and safe and to grow to their fullest potential. nAGLY is a 501c3 Non Profit organization offering young people information, skills and community as well as providing a new reality and images of a hopeful future.
