In this powerful drama, the ultimate confrontation between two mothers in South Side Chicago comes as part of the aftermath of a tragic murder. Loosely based on actual events, The Gospel of Lovingkindness tells the story of a young man murdered for a new pair of shoes. His mother, Mary, struggles to put her life back together after his death, only to encounter the mother of his killer. This poetic and potent story examines the too-true reality of a community defined by class, race, gang violence and the church. Learn More

We went to this show because my lucky numbers are 11:11 (as in the digital clock display). The play was funny after they 4 members were on their "trip." The serious section at the end of the play was very over acted and a bit confusing. Several of the characters had major flaws which were not fully developed. We enjoyed the night out.

Forced, for the first time, to make decisions without the guidance of their parents and elders, the counselors find themselves naked without their usual comforts, and afraid of the unkown. Inspired by the experiences of the playwrights and ensemble, and the evolving beliefs of their peers, 11:11 asks an age-old question of a new generation: why are we willing to fight for something we cannot see or define? And how will the answer to that question affect our country as this new generation matures into becoming its new leaders?
