Overview

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.
