I have AIDS!
Sky Gilbert

Published 2010 by Playwrights Canada Press in Toronto .
Written in English.

About the Book

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. Following him 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 for how to take the news. A black comedy like no other, I Have AIDS! is a play about gay men who are neither tragic or sad, and we are led to laugh with them, not at them.
