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

Written and Performed by
Holly Hughes is an internationally acclaimed performance artist whose work maps the troubled fault lines of identity. Her combination of poetic imagery and political satire has earned her wide attention and placed her work at the center of America's culture wars.
Hughes was among the first students to attend The New York Feminist Art Institute, an experiment in progressive pedagogy launched by members of the Heresies Collective. While there, she worked with feminist artists such as Miriam Schapiro and Mary Beth Edelson and participated in performance work at A.I.R. gallery.
Hughes has performed at venues across North America, Great Britain and Australia including the Walker Art Center, the Wexner Center, the Guggenheim Museum, the Yale Repertory, the Drill Hall in London, and numerous universities. She has published two books: Clit Notes: A Sapphic Sampler and O Solo Homo: The New Queer Performance, co-edited with Dr. David Roman. In addition, her work has been widely anthologized and has served as foundational material for performance studies, queer studies and feminist performance studies. Hughes is the winner of two Obie awards, a Lambda Book Award, and a GLAAD Media Award.
