Current studio location: 3 Fairfield Rd., Sackville NB, Canada
NEW: Reviews are in for “The Normal Heart”
“This was bar none the best show of yours I’ve been to – it sucked me in and one point I forgot I was watching a show.”
“I was blown away. So powerful. The friend I was with had seen the New York production and found your show to be just as good. He’s something of a critic too! Enjoyed it very much.”
“You and your cast and crew should be very proud about the job you did on that play. It was an emotional roller coaster which had me in tears on several occasions, not to mention when I left the theatre, I was a sniveling mess. I’ve watched a lot of theatre in my life (having spent 14 years with an artistic director as my partner) and I have to say it was one of the most moving pieces I’ve witnessed. Hats off to you and everyone involved with that production… it was worth every penny and every effort to get out to Sackville to see it.”
“I am SO impressed by the play. So powerful and infuriating. I remember those times, and losing my first friend, to the then unnamed disease/virus, well. All aspects of the play are excellent (acting, set design, music etc.etc.!!)..Please congratulate everyone for me. Just WOW.”

The Normal Heart
by Larry Kramer
A searing drama about public and private indifference to the AIDS plague and one man’s lonely fight to awaken the world to the crisis, The Normal Heart was based on Kramer’s real-life experience.
“An astounding drama . . . a damning indictment of a nation in the middle of an epidemic with its head in the sand. It will make your hair stand on end even as the tears spurt from your eyes.” — Liz Smith, New York Daily News
Produced to acclaim in New York, London and Los Angeles, it was named one of the greatest plays of the 20th century by the Royal National Theatre.
