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

I loved that it was a two person play. It was intimate and riveting. Also, as an African American woman, it was difficult to watch at times, but I can appreciate the honesty and am always happy to see this subject matter tackled with class.
A soul-searching journey begins when an African-American professor is left by his wife due to his reluctance to embrace his identity. The night of their break he's visited by the spirits of several male ancestors whose stories illuminate and guide his way. Blue Door is a beautiful exploration of family and identity that will resonate with anyone who has ever struggled to live with—or escape—the past.
