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 love the Biograph and when I had the opportunity to see "It's a Wonderful Life" there I could not pass it up. The acting was splendid and the set well done to remind us of the time period of the story. This was a "preview" but you would never know it. This cast brought this classic story to life. I thoroughly enjoyed the show and recommend it to everyone. I'll be seeing it again before Christmas.
