‘The Normal Heart’ opens in the capital for the first time in 35 years

Larry Kramer’s ground-breaking play about the AIDS crisis has returned to the National Theatre, to mark 35 years since its UK premiere.

‘The Normal Heart’, which more recently was adapted for film, tells a largely autobiographical story, of a group of young men in New York in the early 1980s as a new virus beings to spread.

Alicia has been speaking to one of the actors involved, Dino Fetscher.

‘The Normal Heart’ will be on at the Olivier Theatre at the National until 6 November.
