Join us for a staged reading of Larry Kramer’s THE NORMAL HEART to benefit Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, performed by the powerful cast of Strawberry Theatre Workshop‘s critically acclaimed Spring 2014 production.

Directed by Intiman Artistic Collective member Sheila Daniels and featuring Intiman’s Producing Artistic Director Andrew Russell as Felix Turner, THE NORMAL HEART is an intimate story of a tight-knit group of friends that doubles as a real-life political thriller. A masterwork of love, rage,and pride, THE NORMAL HEART is a fearless look at the sexual politics of New York during the discovery of the AIDS epidemic.


All donations given at this reading will benefit Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center’s ongoing global effort to discover an HIV/AIDS vaccine.



The cast also includes Greg Lyle Newton, Peter Crook, Amy Thone, Rob Burgess, Stephen Black, Simon Hamlin, Brian Culbertson, and Joseph Cummings.


What the Critics Say about Strawberry Theatre Workshop’s THE NORMAL HEART:

“Greg Lyle-Newton gives a beautifully passionate and fiery performance as Ned… he conveys all those contradictory but very realistic characteristics and grounds the character in a strong sense of believability and conviction that anchors all the other characters in the play.”

“Director Sheila Daniels and her cast treat the show with complete respect and honesty and create a near seamless evening of powerful theater.”

“Those of us too young to bear witness to the horrors of these years should count ourselves lucky, but we should do more than that. If The Normal Heart reminds us of anything, it’s to never, never stop shouting into the wind. Make them hear you.” -CityArts
