Larry Kramer’s “The Normal Heart” debuted in 1985 and was the first play to address the AIDS epidemic. In celebration of its 25th anniversary and to keep the play’s messages going strong, director Tom Trudgeon and his Actor Saturday ensemble will present the play next week. It opens on Dec. 1 to commemorate World AIDS Day, and a portion of the proceeds goes to the AIDS Services Coalition Center. “‘The Normal Heart’ is about how as a (LGBT) community, we must recognize and have pride in our contributions to society as they stand throughout history as well as today,” Trudgeon says. “The autobiographical characters in this play are some of the most exciting and robust you’ll ever see on stage — the way they fight the media, the government, the medical profession and even apathy and moral conflict within their own community during this frightening time period.” —Sara Havens
