WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
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.
