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

It was very thought provoking seeing how the family dealt with the decision of going back to the old neighborhood or staying in the suburbs. The actors did a wonderful job in portraying their characters which addeed to the enjoyment of the play.
It's 1995, the year of the Million Man March. Angela and Frank Freeman, an affluent black couple "living green" in a mostly white Chicago suburb, disagree about selling their beautiful home to fund their daughter's college education. Should they resettle to another "safe white community," or return, as a family, to discover their roots in "the old neighborhood?"
Victory Gardens Emsemble member Gloria Bond Clunie (North Star, Shoes) asks questions that touch the heart of our community in this modern day homage to A Raisin in the Sun. What happened to our families as we "moved up" and fled the communities that once nurtured us? How do we revitalize our neighborhoods? How do we protect our children from the violence that plagues our streets?
