In 1986, Paul Monette lost Roger Horwitz, his partner of 12 years, to AIDS. In the five months that followed, Monette wrote an exquisite cycle of poems that traces an epic journey from grief back to the land of living, full of rage, humor, and a love that transcends death.
Actor Scott Mendelsohn, in collaboration with director ShelleyWyant, brings this story to the stage in a solo show that gives voice to a lost generation of gay men recalling the courage with which they faced the epidemic of their time, as we face one of our own.
Join us on Thursday, December 10th for a livestream, work-in-progress presentation of the piece, followed by a discussion about the piece and how the early AIDS epidemic speaks to the COVID epidemic.
