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

Excelelnt acting by the entire cast. A little over by Ross aka Roshan, but he was good and powerful. Avinash was the pick of the lot in our group of friends. Keep it up!! and all the best.
I am sure the play will be well received and do well.

The acting was wonderful and it is not a story that you have seen before! The actors and director and produces all came out for the talk back which made it even more interesting. Great cast all with Indian backgrounds which made it more authentic!
