Drama Minnesota premiere

From the playwright of the road weeps, the well runs dry comes a contemporary drama inspired by true events and countless tragedies. The Gospel of Lovingkindness is a powerful and poetic story about two black mothers and their sons whose lives are shattered by the heartbreak of gun violence.

Two teenage boys on Chicago’s South Side: one struggles to stay on the track his mother has put him on, and the other is all his mother had hoped he would be. When their paths cross, history repeats herself, leaving behind two grieving mothers and a city on edge. The Gospel of Lovingkindness is at once an urgent appeal for an end to gun violence and a prayer for forgiveness, dignity, and hope.

The Gospel of Lovingkindness is an ambitious prayer; one that pleads for a deeper appreciation for the value of life, as well as an end to violence and the circumstances that create it.” –Newcity Stage.
