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 really enjoyed this show. I thought the reflections on what love is -- does it reside in language, physicality, something else -- were very interesting, I thought the relationship between the sisters was well drawn and the acting was great.

A Chicago Premiere</p> <p>One of the hottest new plays among regional theaters devoted to new work, Love Person is an intellectually intriguing love story about language as a portal and a barrier to human connection. Can love transcend sexual orientation, physical attraction, and social structure, and rely instead on the ways in which people communicate? Two couples, three cultures, and four languages blossom, break, sustain, repair, and flourish in this language laden love mystery, performed in American Sign Language, Sanskrit, English, and projected e-mail.</p>
