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

Excellent, moving show. Wonderful insights into the lives of five fictional (but so real) American Muslim women. The complimentary tea before the performance really set the mood for all the tea-related plotlines in the show. Appreciated the post-show Q&A and discussion; it was a nice opportunity to talk to the playwright, respond to the stories, listen to others' responses, and extend what was, as I said, an excellent theater-going experience. I highly recommend it.
