Buddies in Bad Times Theatre

A masterwork of love, rage and pride.

Studio 180 was pleased to work in association with Buddies in Bad Times Theatre once again, to remount our acclaimed 2011 production.

The story of a society in denial between 1981 and 1984, The Normal Heart unfolds like a real-life political thriller, as a tight-knit group of friends refuses to let doctors, politicians and the press bury the truth of an unspoken epidemic behind a wall of silence. A quarter-century after it was written, this outrageous, unflinching and totally unforgettable look at the beginning of the AIDS crisis remains one of the theatre’s most powerful evenings ever.

In 2011, Studio 180’s production premiered to rave reviews and popular acclaim, earning top-star ratings and being recognized as one of the best productions of the year by the Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, Toronto Sun, NOW Magazine and Slotkin Letter/CIUT 89.5 FM.
