Produced in Association with Tom Kirdahy Productions

 

Kevin, a surviving activist from the front lines of the AIDS crisis, finds himself struggling to find purpose in a modern age of greater gay rights and political urgency. When an unexpected event threatens to erase the history he was part of creating, Kevin’s anger and passion is renewed. Hilarious, sharp, and deeply moving, this show is a powerful look at the personal and political hazards of rewriting the past, and one man's attempt to move forward.

 

By Tim Pinckney

 

Directed by Dennis Lickteig
