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 felt the play was deeply moving - the stage was bare as I felt the play deemed necessary. It was very moving and the actors were excellent. I thought the second half dragged a bit - overall I think The Lost Boys of Sudan is worth seeing. The Zig Zag restaurant right across the street was fabulous, food was delicious and served nicely. BYOB - used valet parking as the weather was bad - A good time was had by all.
Three boys meet in the worst way: fleeing the horrors of war. As they team up on a perilous journey to a refugee camp, they exchange heroic survival stories, songs and even laughter. Thus begins an extraordinary journey that eventually takes the boys of the Dinka tribe to, of all places--Fargo, North Dakota--where drought, crocodiles and guerrillas are replaced with malls, video games, and Skittles. This play is written by Lonnie Carter, the author of recent VGT hits The Romance of Magno Rubio and Wheatley.
