The Flight Deck

David Wilson

This week on Open Air, host David Latulippe talks with actors John Fisher and Morgan Lange about the premiere at Theatre Rhinoceros of ‘The Normal Heart’, a play by Larry Kramer. Set in the early eighties, the play deals with the rise of the HIV–AIDS crisis in New York City, as seen through the eyes of writer/activist Ned Weeks (played by John Fisher, who also directs), the gay founder of a prominent HIV advocacy group. ‘The Normal Heart’ runs through November 25 at The Gateway Theatre (Formerly The Eureka Theatre); 215 Jackson St. (at Battery St.) in San Francisco.

When Oakland theater company Ragged Wing Ensemble first started making work in 2004, they were renting space show-by-show.  Eventually, they made themselves a permanent home in downtown Oakland, creating a shared arts space they called the Flight Deck. It’s now home to four resident theater companies, and hosts performances, classes, workshops, and a gallery.
