I Have AIDS! (print) by Sky Gilbert

When stand-up comic Prodon Slamzeck tells his lover Vidor that he has AIDS, it barely interrupts their dinner. And why should it? What was once a death sentence is now no more than a chronic condition, and most gay men deal with AIDS with much less melodrama than they did years ago.

I Have AIDS! (print)

Following Prodon through the five stages of acceptance—Denial, Partying, Loss of Control, Religious Conversion, and Acceptance—the play pops in and out of monologues with Prodon and into scenes with Lady Booty, an outrageous drag queen, Ron, a man who has made AIDS his personal religion, and the ever supportive Vidor, each giving their own advice on how to take the news.

A black comedy like no other, I Have AIDS! is a play about gay men who are neither tragic nor sad, and we are led to laugh with them, not at them.

"...thought-provoking, anger-provoking and often hilarious." —Globe and Mail
