ASSEMBLY HALL (ENTER by way of 239 Thompson Street)
The first reading of this new play by Thom Fogarty, PATIENT LOVER FRIEND, has been lifetimes in the making. It is about life and love in the early days of the AIDS epidemic. With moments that are both painfully intimate and aggressively profane, PLF takes us on a journey through the days of joy and heady living which led to a horror that changed the future of this city, this country, indeed the world. It plays with structure, blending realism with expressionism, in a multi-scene format, that builds to a climax both harsh and tender.
