The Gospel of Lovingkindness is a hymn-and-hip-hop-tinged elegy, set on the South Side of Chicago in a time of rising gun violence. The play tells the story of Manny, a 17-year-old who sings for President Obama at the White House, only to be murdered for his Air Jordan sneakers a few weeks later. Manny's mother Mary retraces the trajectory of her son's fateful encounter with Noel, a fellow teenager who's experienced heartbreaking setbacks of his own. Mary conjures the ghost of Civil Rights activist Ida B. Wells, who offers a challenging perspective for the family and our community. Marcus Gardley's gripping, timely drama is staged by Mosaic Theater Resident Director Jennifer L. Nelson at D.C.'s Atlas Performing Arts Center.
