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

Three million people are in Chicago in August 1968 with three million stories about the events that unfolded. Through a collage of viewpoints from police officers, journalists, clergy, and demonstrators, we visit the Democratic National Convention and the riots that ensued. New live music, projections, and a standing-room performance all result in a fast-paced look at a piece of Chicago’s history.
